fixing a mistake
can anyone tell me how to fix when you are making a hat & are on the desending rows I was knitting 4 & 2 together & almost to the end I had to stop & when I picked it back up I knitted 5 & 2 together so my question is how to correct this. I know how to go down the row & use a crochet needle to pick up stitches but I don't know how when it's the knit 2 together, how to get that back right

When it's right near where I am at I just tinK (Knit backwards) slip you left needle into the stiches that you knitted together, slip that stich that you made off the needle and pull. If the stiches are switches or turned back wards just fix it. It sounds like you are right near where the mistake is and tinKing is the best way I think to that...

I agree. Even if you've started on the next round/row, it should be easier to unknit back to where the goof is.
