Little Lessons: Picking up a Dropped Loop
You won’t need today’s Little Lesson.
Perhaps we should just call it a day here, and you can go back to your knitting?
I’m sure that you’ll never drop a stitch, so you don’t need a video showing you how to pick up a loop.
Well, just in case …
Today’s video tutorial shows you how to correct a dropped loop in marled knitting. If you’re like me, this is the single most likely error you make with marled knitting. You make a stitch where you only catch one of the strands of yarn.
The good news is that this is a really easy mistake to fix. In the video tutorial I’m taking you through how to pick it up when the loop is sitting on the right side of the fabric (as seen up top), as well as how to pick it up when it has popped through to the wrong side (above).
Those pesky dropped loops! Happily though, laddering the loops back up is a cinch. You just need a crochet hook and you’ll have it fixed in no time.
Video notes: If you are watching on YouTube, you can hover over the time bar to see the different sections of the video, which is handy if there’s a particular thing you want to re-watch. The video also has subtitles which you can display by clicking on the CC button.
Now that my hat is all fixed I have all the time in the world to browse and drool over the other beautiful designs in Field Guide No. 19: Marls. The Color Explosion Throw is shouting at me rather loudly …
