Picking Up Dropped Stitches

I was asked how to fix dropped stitches so I’ve made a quick video showing how to do it.

I hope some of you find it useful.

    That’s a really helpful close-up video. Thank you so much for this. I dread dropping stitches and usually have to resort to starting again.

      Sometimes it’s easier just to start again if you’ve dropped a lot of stitches but if it’s just the odd one or two then it’s an easy fix.

      Someone may know an even easier way than this but this is the way I’ve always done it.

    Suzy, I loved that I could see the detail of picking up stitches. The video was really clear. Now I am going to practice so when it happens again, I won’t have to start again. Thank you !

    Hi Susan! Good to see how you get the latch tool behind the knitting.We do have to have alot of patience as machine knitters!!
    Clarity of video is excellent.
    Hope you are keeping well.
    Be seeing you soon!

      Sometimes if it’s laddered too far down I have to start latching up directly behihd the work then stop and put it back in from the top as in the video. Luckily it doesn’t happen that often!

    Thank you Suzy, the video is great and you make it look so easy!!
    I will have to practice whilst watching your video. I always seem to focus so much on the dropped stitch that I don’t notice that the stitches on either side have also come off whilst I’ve been fiddling trying to fix the first one. I call this the domino effect :-/
