Accidentally increased?
I noticed something looked odd about my knitting and thought maybe I dropped a stitch or twisted a stitch but upon closer inspection, it looks like I increased when shouldn't have, so there is an extra stitch (all stockinette). Is there anything I can do to correct this without pulling it all apart?

You could knit 2 together, once, and that should correct the problem and be virtually unnoticeable. Do the K2tog one or two stitches in from the edge.

Okay, that's a good idea. I was thinking about dropping that stitch and pulling it all out but then there would be a long empty column. This will work better because it's not that noticeable and I don't want to pull it all out. Thanks!

yes if you dropped the stitch you would create a hole in the scarf that would eventually look like a pantyhose run!
