I'm brand new to the crochet game. I spent a few days and got the hang of all the basic stitches using plan ol' yarn.

I then decided to jump in and make something with fancy yarn. I picked up some Read Heart Boutique Unforgettable. Its some fuzzy stuff, but so soft and pretty!

Anyway...so I'm working a wave/zig zag/chevron pattern and I had to pull out a couple of rows to redo them. At the very beginning one row, the fuzzy yarn knotted itself up and I cannot get it undone. The way the pattern works, I start a new row by chaining 3 and then doing a couple of double crochets into the first stitch.

With the knot there, there isn't a first stitch to chain into. Can I just do a slip stitch and do my double crochets into that? Does that even make sense? I'm still rough on the terminology.

Thanks!

Someone else may have a better suggestion, but if I were you I would just cut the yarn, cut out the knot, and just keep crocheting with your yarn, working in the ends either right away or later when you're finished.
