from this book
I put it down one year ago because I was making it for a friend with whom I had a falling out and because I found a miscrossed cable. I found this website
that shows how to fix it without frogging ten rows
But I'm leery... I'm more of any unknitter than I am a frogger anyway. If no one has any advice by tomorrow afternoon, I'll be on the sofa watching the NFL playoffs while I unknit and try again. I wouldn't wear it myself with that spot, let alone give it to someone else.
