When knitting lace, a lifeline is a great way to make sure that if you make a mistake and need to rip back a few rows of work you'll be able to figure out how to get your stitches back on your needle. Here's how it works: A lifeline is simply a piece of smooth contrasting yarn placed through the stitches on a row you know you've knit correctly. It's great to use a smooth cotton yarn for your lifeline. Thread your lifeline onto a yarn needle and just slide it through each stitch on the needle, running right below the needle. Make sure the lifeline is long enough to have a few inches of yarn hanging off each side of the work. Once the lifeline is in place, knit on as normal. You can add a new lifeline every couple of mistake-free inches, either leaving the old one in place or taking it out and moving it up.
