hmmm I made the clap a while ago so I'm not sure I remember. But let's see.

Since the clap is knitted diagonally, if you forgot to drop a stitch, I don't really see how you could correct it without frogging. When I knitted it, I remember putting lifelines EVERYWHERE for exactly that reason.

Now, would it be possible to snip it and drop it? that's a good question. I wouldn't know exactly where to cut. I think you would need to be careful... honestly if you don't want to frog (and believe me I DO understand why you don't want to do that ), you could leave it. Just call it... your personal interpretation. Now I wonder if maybe you should "forget" a few more times so it looks better...

There is still a KAL on craftster.org going on I believe. Perhaps one of them might be able to help, or you could find a post with the same problem.

I would bet money it's happened to someone before. I dropped on the wrong row so I have one that is one stitch less wide than the others, and it drives me crazy. How's that for insane? :O

Here is the link: 163 pages on that KAL
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=25312.0

You can search on that topic only in the blue bar at the top.

I forgot to drop some of mine, and I clipped the yarn. Luckily I had plenty of yarn to tie a small knot and bury it in the border so you can't tell.
It's possible for it to work out, but it's up to you if you want to attempt it.
