HELP!! Tinking question
Pretty new to knitting and on row 5 of a blanket (197 stitches long) & made a mistake several stitches in row 5. I successfully undid knitting and a ssk, but don't know of its possible to undo a series that's next (sl2, k1, p2sso) is this doable? Or UNdoable?

Undo in what way? Drop down to it and fix a problem?

It can be tinked but might be more than you'd be comfortable with. What kind of mistake did you make? If it's on the current row, sometimes it makes sense to fix it when you get back to it on the next row.

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
Oh sure, you can take out these sts. Here's a video for a similar situation. The second set of sts shows you how to pinch the sts with your finger to make sure that they don't go anywhere and then a dec similar to yours in shown.

Don't worry about which way the sts are facing for now. You can make sure that they aren't twisted when you go to re-knit them.
You might think about putting in a lifeline with this pattern just in case you make a mistake (hope not) later in the pattern.

There's also a good section on the Free Videos tab at the top of the page under Tips, called Fixing Mistakes that might be useful.

I actually used that video to tink a ssk. If the one I'm attempting to undo is a p2sso would it work in the same way?

To answer everyone's question, the mistake was beginning my panel pattern on row 5 without knitting 5 stitches first.

Yes, this will certainly work with the p2sso. If you're worried about the stitches getting away from you, use the technique shown in the video: pinch the stitches with your fingers and thumb as you pull out the working yarn.
You could test this out on a small swatch of your pattern to make sure you can easily do it, if you'd like.

Great idea. I never thought to do an "on purpose" mistake swatch to test a difficult tink. I usually end up tinking back father than necessary when I make that kind of mistake. Thanks!
