You mean when you drop them on purpose, or by accident? To pick them up when you don't mean to drop them, look under Fixing Mistakes on the Tips page for a video.

Like anything it just takes practice. You fix the knit side from the knit side and the purl from the purl side. I find a crochet hook the easiest myself.

Here's some help on fixing mistakes.

This is a good one done with a crochet hook.

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