Picking Up That Dropped Stitch

We have been getting many questions during this Covid-19 time.
We are sorry we can’t be there for you 100% of the time. Hopefully, some of these videos will help until we can be together in person.
At some point in your knitting career, you are going to drop a stitch. When this happens, a stitch falls off your needle and unravels for several rows beneath the row you are working on. First of all, don’t panic. Knit across until you’ve reached the dropped stitch.
Insert a crochet hook (or the top of your needle) into the loop of the dropped stitch.
Now grab the bar of the stitch right above it in the crook of your crochet hook. Pull the bar through the stitch. If your stitch has dropped down several rows, repeat until your stitch is on the same row as the rest of your knitting.
Slip the stitch onto your knitting needle, making sure it is seated properly with right leg in front, left leg behind.
If you need a video to help you- try this one.
