I'm a beginner trying to knit a scarf for my girlfriend, because it's getting really cold around here, and I thought it would make her a bit warm for Christmas.
I'm knitting the basic ribbing (knit 2 purl 2 kind), I finished my last row and try joining a new yarn using the "Knit-and-Join" video, I think I accidentally manage to stitch an extra stitch in the beginning of my new row. I didn't realize it only until I knit and purl 5 stitches.
So the next correct stitch should be a knit stitch, but my bottom row is a purl, so I'm off by a stitch.
I'm sorry if I made this sound complicated, I'm just not quite sure how to explain...
The question, is there a simple way to correct/remove that 1 extra stitch at the beginning? Should I continue knitting like usual and fix the extra stitch later when I'm finished? I'm afraid it would ruin everything because I've just finished my 2nd yarn...
Thanks very much for your time.
Warmest regards from South-East Asia!
