Pick Up a Dropped Edge Stitch Several Rows Below

An edge stitch that has been dropped and allowed to run for several rows has a different appearance from a run down the interior of a piece of knitting. Instead of seeing a row of horizontal ladders, you see 2 loops at the edge: The dropped stitch and a large loop of yarn. For this repair, use a crochet hook in the appropriate size for your yarn.

1 Insert the crochet hook from front to back through the dropped stitch. Pull the big loop through the hook to the front.

2 Repeat step 1 until you get to the top.

3 Use the hook to pull the working yarn through the last stitch that you created.

4 Use the hook to place the repaired stitch back onto the left needle.

The repaired stitch is ready to be worked as usual.
