dropped fisherman stitch
Hello, I'm kind of new at this but here goes.
I have knitted sleeves and back to a size 4 boys jacket and now am working on the front. Well what do you know about picking up dropped stitches that had been knit 1 row below (fisherman rib stitch) I would be so grateful if someone could describe how to do this. I am about to lose it. For some reason I came this far without a problem but I am really stuck. I hate the thought of starting this piece over from the beginning since I have come halfway up the piece. PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP/
Thanks for any help

Oy those are hard to do. I just go back stitch by stitch to the one I need to fix. I just leave both loops on the needle for the sts that were k1 below instead of trying to get them where they were to begin with.
