Mistakes are just part of knitting, but it’s no fun when they stop you in your tracks and there is no one around to help. Learn to recognize and analyze mistakes, whether a dropped stitch, an
extra stitch, twisted stitches, flared edges, or something more “creative.”
Learn to back up, correct, modify, compensate, or whatever is required to get you back on track and feeling in control of your knitting.
