How-To: Fix a Forgotten Yarn-Over

Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 9.14.27 AM

For the past month I’ve been carrying around the most perfect fluffy yellow yarn. I can’t show you the yarn just yet – it is a new one for fall – but I can tell you that it is simply fabulous! I finally began playing with the yarn for a special project. The pattern stitch is made up of a series of yarn-overs that create a pretty lace design that’s simple to knit. I’ve been knitting on this project everywhere, which occasionally means distractions. Most often, I’ve looked down at my knitting and realized I forgot a yarn over. Sometimes when this happens I rip back and fix my mistake. Other times, I do a sneaky little trick to make up for my missed yarn over. This is works if you discover you have forgotten a yarn over in the next row. Watch as I demonstrate…

(Shown below from left to right) This would work with Chock, Zircon, or Hantsuki.

Hope this helps in your next project!

Happy Making,
