Fixing a Dropped Stitch in Garter

Last week I showed you how to pick up a dropped stitch in stockinette. In garter, though, there’s a bit of a trick to it. Garter needs the stitch to be knit from the front, then knit from the back (since that’s what garter is!) Which means you either have to remove the crochet hook and reposition for each row, OR — use a double-headed crochet hook! I always have one handy in one or more of my notions bags.

Here’s a video showing you how to pick a stitch up in garter:

Hopefully this was helpful!!

Next week I’ll continue talking about Knit Fixes, and show you how to handle a snag in your knitting.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!
