I dropped a stitch about 3" below my current progress on a baby sweater in garter stitch-all knit rows. If I try to correct the dropped stitch by following instructions for knit rows it ends up looking like stockinette on one side and purl on the other. I've done too much work in the way of binding off then casting on for a neck edge to just be able to rip it out.
Help-how do I correct a dropped stitch on garter pattern?
I've avoided using garter stitch because I absolutely hated picking up a dropped stitch. I eventually worked it out to do it more or less the way shown in the video salmonmac posted. When it happens again, I'll watch the video for a refresher.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
