Dropped a stitch? Purled when you should have knit? These little mistakes can stop a knitter in his or her tracks until there's time for a trip to the yarn shop for help. After this class, you'll have no problem picking up those dropped stitches, ripping out a row and getting your knitting back on the needles, or even just backing up a few stitches. The ability to identify and fix mistakes is what separates beginner knitters from intermediate ones--it's time to level up!
Swatch #2: Using worsted weight yarn and size US 8 needles, cast on 20 stitches. Knit in garter stitch (knit every row) until work measures 4". Do not bind off-leave stitches on needles.
