I have been knitting for a while and I can fix simple mistakes – a dropped stitch, unknit a couple of rows, but anything more complicated is beyond me and I end up re-starting.
I decided to be pro-active and take a course – this one from Craftsy (Fixing Knitting Mistakes with Ann Budd). In the image above you can see I am working on my swatches. I have the pdf instructions on my Kindle and I am watching flosstube (the Twisted Stitcher – I love watching Vonna, she is genuine and entertaining).
This first swatch is about recognizing stitches (and I know I made a mistake with one of the lifted increases and didn’t know how to fix it! – the irony)
