Emily Explains: My yarn broke and there is a hole in my knitting… help!

The other day I noticed a small hole in my handknit sweater. Alas, my yarn had worn down to almost nothing and snapped! I was lucky because I had an extra skein of the yarn that I made the sweater with. Using the duplicate stitch I wove a new piece of yarn into the row where the yarn broke in my sweater. I traced the stitches in the row, leading up to the hole and forming a new stitch with my thread and needle.

To demonstrate, I made a small swatch, cut a hole just like the hole in my sweater and used a contrasting yarn to fix it.

Of course, I hope that none of you come across a hole in your beloved sweaters, but just in case, you can follow along with this how-to video to fix the hole in no time.

Happy Making,

Emily
