Placing Unraveled Stitches Back on Needles

Helpful knitting tips!

When necessary to unravel several rows in order to correct a problem, wind the yarn into a ball as you unravel back to the row in question; using a needle one or two sizes smaller than those you are working with, unravel the problem row one stitch at a time and place the free stitch on the smaller needle -- using the smaller needle will help prevent splitting the yarn as it is replaced on the needle.

After the entire row has been unraveled and all stitches are on the smaller needle, resume knitting with the regular size needles.
