Hi all you Crafty Smarties out there!

I have a dilemma.  While working a Clapotee, I got all the way to the end (just about to bind off) before I realized that I overlooked the part where I am supposed to drop stitches at both ends.  So, consequently, I have half a Clappy w/o dropped stitches.  I ripped back to where I should have started dropping stitches on both ends.  But now what?  One side has stitches already dropped when they shouldn't have been just yet.  What should I do?

Please help.  I am desperate... Huh Cry

Hmmm. Well, you'll have to experiment to see if this works, but...what I would try is picking up the dropped stitches that aren't supposed to be dropped yet (just like doing a M1, pull the bar up with your needle and knit it) the first time you knit across the row, then continue with the pattern, dropping where appropriate. I think the stitches will drop just fine back to where they'd been dropped previously.

Good luck!

I was thinking that might work, but I was sort of freaked out about trying it.  Thanks for the advice.  I guess I am just going to have to be a little adventurous about this one...
