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...
