I dropped a stitch
I'm new to knitting, so it that the right term? Dropping a stitch? I casted 32 on and now I have 31...how do I add it back?

If you can see where you slipped the stitch it's as easy as getting a crochet hook around the same size and chaining it up. If you can't then, depending on what you're knitting, a simple YO may suffice.

Yeah, you need to find it first. If you're doing garter it is harder to do the crochet hook pick up. In the videos there is one on fixing dropped stitches you can check out. It's under tips I think.

If you add a stitch I wouldn't use a YO. It would leave a hole so use a KFB or other method. They can all be found under increases in the video section.
