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.
Knitting to keep my sanity. It's working... kinda...

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.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
