Broke the cast on
I am working on a baby blanet and have about 3 inches... the co line was tight for some reason and I pulled on it and snap

does this mean I need to FROG or can I keep going

It will probably unravel if you don't. If it's only one small spot, you might be able to sew it, but it will probably show. Sorry!

No. If a stitch is unsecured it will unravel, whether it's a knit or purl. It's just as if it's off the needle.

You know what... its alright! I wasn't really sure I was doing the pattern of the stich correctly or not. So I just pulled it all out. It wasn't much.

But my cast on line is still really tight

I changed colors so I too the starting yarn on a yarn needle and threaded it through to reinforce it.


We will see if that works I suppose :thinking:

You basically put in a life line, it sounds like. That will prevent any unravelling if it should happen again.

A good way to keep your cast on from being too tight is to cast onto a needle a size or two larger than the one you'll be using. Then use the right-sized needle to knit or purl your cast on off of the larger needle and then just use the two right-sized needles needles to do your project.
