how to take out a knit one below
(Gales Ferry, CT)
I have discovered a mistake in my knitting and have to back-track several rows to make the correction.
I am not a knitter who is comfortable taking out entire sections and then putting the stitches back on the needle. I prefer to take out a row at a time until I come to the mistake.
With that said, within my pattern is a "knit one below" and my question is how to take it out when I come to it and retrieve the correct stitch?
When I've tried to do it with past mistakes I end up with two loops and a lost stitch. Obviously, I'm doing something wrong.
Any help you can be with my question would be greatly appreciated since I don't have anyone locally who can assist me.
