Correcting mistakes in edge stitches without unraveling
Hi -

I am working a garter st button band on the edge of a lace pattern and noticed that I flubbed and purled one row of my garter stitch a few rows down. Whoops!!

I dropped the stitches one at a time and fixed them with a crochet hook, but I can not figure out how to drop down and fix the edge stitches. I have no interest in unraveling, because I have a couple hundred stitches on the needles.

Thank you for any assistance!

It may not be all that noticeable - I've goofed like this before and just left it, unless there was also another reason to rip it out anyway.

I've done this before, and what I did to "fix" it was to take a piece of yarn, weave one end in close to the mistake and then I embroidered a ridge over that little piece of stockinette. Then I wove in the other end & clipped it- I honestly can't even find it now.
