Fix This!

Let's learn how to fix some of our most common mistakes.

What happens if you are short a stitch or have too many. How do you back out a k2tog or SSK or CDD? What if you forgot to increase or decrease? How do you fix a dropped stitch?

We hope this class gives you some added confidence. 

You'll learn to pick up dropped stitches in stockinette and garter stitch. 

You'll learn to unknit knit and purl stitches.

You'll learn about reading columns of knitting to recognize common mistakes. 

After you rip out, you'll learn how to put your stitches back on the needles.

You'll learn about lifelines.
