and only took me half an hour for each side.
Before doing anything, I secured the stitches that I didn’t want to unravel. The stitches for the front of the sweater are on the red stitch holder and I used a small stitch holder as a lifeline so I didn’t unravel too far down. The first four stitches on the needle are the ones I worked with.I unraveled those four
and caught them on a smaller size double pointed needle (dpn). I made the two right-most stitches switch places with the two left-most stitches by putting them on a second needle, swinging it behind, and putting them back on the needle to the left of the other two.
I learned the technique of knitting stitches from the ladders in a class by Ann Budd on Craftsy (now Bluprint) called Save our Stitches. Totally worthwhile class, by the way. Up until then, I used a crochet hook to re-work stitches. I still do if it’s one stitch, but with many it’s much faster to knit them. And fun!
Now I can continue on my merry way! 🙂
