Purled instead of Knit
Hi everyone -
I'm working a 2x2 ribbing and have noticed that I've purled a stitch instead of knitting it. I did not notice it right away but when I came upon it again after a round of knitting. How do I fix this - make it a knit stitch instead of a purl stitch without having to un-knit all the way back?
Thanks for you help -

You can fix it by dropping just that stitch off the needle when you come to it, and using a crochet hook to pick it back up in the proper direction. There are a number of videos on this page (click link) under "Fixing Mistakes" and I believe it's the first one in that section that you'd want to look at, 'Correcting a stitch without unraveling rows'.
