Unraveling and Re-inserting Your Needle

If you make a mistake, it can be pretty harrowing to have to unravel your work and re-insert the needle, especially when doing complex lace knitting. If you are not using a lifeline, you’ll need to do a little bit of work when unraveling the knitting to get the stitches back on the needle. But it’s doesn’t have to be difficult. You simply unravel your work to a suitable row, and then stitch-by-stitch unravel the row, while you add the exposed stitch to the needle. This ensures your stitches are oriented properly (not twisted), and you don’t drop any stitches accidentally.
