While cabling last night my hand slipped and I pulled the six or so stitches I'd just knitted off the needle. I've tried to get them back on but something is amiss. In the past I've just inserted a needle a few rows below and unravelled to it, but as this pattern is a bit more complicated with cabling, purls and knit stitches in a row I'm worried I won't do it correctly. I can count back down to a row which is just purl and knit, but I find it hard to work out where to insert the needle in a purl stitch. Is there an easier way of getting them back on?!
Also, as it's a fairly complicated pattern (for me!) should I give a lifeline a go?
