Hello everyone! I started knitting a couple of weeks ago and I have just completed my first knitting project ever. I'm really proud! Well, I was proud, until I noticed this stitch. Don't ask me how it happened; I'm baffled.
I knit Wendy's warm braided cable wristwarmers (well, just the left one so far) and when I tried it on I discovered a loose stitch! Now since I'm only a beginner I have no idea if it is possible to correct this without unraveling the whole project. Besides, I've already bound off!  Huh
This is the little bugger:

I put a needle in the loose stitch to prevent it from dropping any further. Oh and the hole next to it is for my thumb, before anyone starts yelling that I made another mistake. Wink

Is there anyone who can help me?

By the way, the pattern was great and I recommend it to everybody! You can find it here:

What you can do is take some of your yarn and loop it through your dropped stitch. Then secure that yarn to the inside of your wrist warmer and draw the ends through as though you were starting a new ball of yarn.

I did it and it worked! Thanks a lot!
