How to Pick up a Dropped Stitch
It is easiest to pick it up with a crochet hook. For a knit stitch, be sure the loose horizontal strands are in back of the dropped stitch. Insert the hook into the stitch from front to back. Catch the first horizontal strand and pull it through. Continue up until you have worked all the strands. Place the newest stitch on the left needle, making sure it is not backward.

For beginners, we recommend Noro Kureyon yarn because it's color is variegated and and it is single-ply, which makes it easy to fix mistakes.
