I am knitting in the round and made a mistake...maybe dropped a stitch?  Anyone care to take a look and help me out?  I don't want to have to rip out a whole row to go back.



The second picture is the side I am working on...I am purling that side.  The first picture is the other side.

Thanks Smiley

itis hard to tell b/c the picture is really small, but it does look like a dropeed stitch.  just loop the "float" up over the needle and re-knit it.

It looks like a drop stitch from the first stitch on the left needle. It seem like loose you didn't go through the first left stitch, which belongs to the previous row. To do that, you need to slip the right needle purlwise into the first left stitch, hook the loose yarn, and remove the stitch from the previous row.

My 2 cents, hope that helps.

It doesn't really look like a dropped stitch to me because the loop from the row before is sitting there on the needle, meaning it wouldn't run like a drop stitch would.

Here's what I would do to fix it, it will probably sound more complicated than it is:
1 - Hold the work like it is in the top picture .
2 - Carefully take that first loop (A) on the left needle off the needle (don't let it drop) and move the long section of yarn (sorry don't really know what to call it) (B) to the back of the work.
3 - Put the first loop (A) back on the left needle.
4 - Knit into that stitch using the long yarn section (B) you moved to the back.
5 - Slip the stitch you just made back to the left needle. Turn you work and continue purling.

Hope you can fix this.

How about trying to go backwards? That usually helps for me when I drop a stitch.

I can't really tell what stitch pattern you're using (I thought it was garter stitch--perhaps it is, and you're purling each row?). 

Either way, I'm going with elijor.  It looks like you didn't pull the new yarn through, so you pretty much just knit (or purl) using that strand there. 

And I have to ask; what yarn is that?

Well thanks everyone for your replies....I tried a couple of the things mentioned here and just couldn't figure it out ACK I am such a newbie knitter!  I ended up ripping it apart which is okay b/c I was making like a capelet and when I took it off the needles and tried it on it was WAY too big on me.  So...back to the drawing board I guess.
The yarn is Lion Brand Landscapes in Autumn Trails.

Any ideas on what to make now LOL?
