Common Knitting Mistakes:

How to Frog a Piece
If you make a mistake in your knitting and don't notice it for several rows, a good course of action for fixing it is to remove the work from the needle and simply rip out the rows you have completed since you made the mistake.

This process is called "frogging". Why frogging? Say "rip it, rip it, rip it" and you'll know. Frog the piece one row past the mistake, put all of the loops back onto the needle, making sure that you put each of the loops on in the same direction.

Working on a flat table and working with good quality wool, like our Malabrigo Rios, make the process easier because the wool stitches won't slip through the previous row while you're putting them back on the needle.
