Ripping Down To Fix Mistakes In Stockinette Stitch
Ripping fig 1 Ripping fig 2 Ripping fig 3
Find a needle several sizes smaller than those you are using for your project. Run the thinner needle through the front, or right, side of each stitch across the row, one row below the mistake. Then simply rip away with abandon, since the ripping will stop when you reach the inserted needle. All the stitches will be in place and you can easily transfer them to your original needle.
