I have a HOLE! How did I do that?
Hi everyone! I have a quick question. I am knitting a baby sweater in stockinette, very easy, but I managed to make a hole. How'd I do that? And, how can I fix it??? (BTW, I love that icon!!!)

follow the work down...do you see a loop that looks dropped?


if not i would guess there is probably a yarn over in the area.

well i am not sure which one it is but i will take the smart comment and run with it...lol. if it is the dropped stitch it is supah easy...get out a crochet hook, go here, and scroll down a smidge to the fixing mistakes videos. there is one there for dropped stitches that is great!

You can let the stitch after the hole run down to where the yo is, take the yo off the needle and the work back up with a crochet hook.

Won't that leave the area around the removed yarn over a little looser than the rest, Ingrid?

There will probably be a loose stitch there, but I'd bet it would even out with a bit of tugging and blocking. It will be less noticeable than a yo hole, though.
