Can you undo your knitting?
Tinking is the best option when you need to undo a few stitches or even a row. It is slow because you undo each stitch one at a time, which certainly takes more time that knitting a stitch. What’s more, you have to deal with the accumulation of working yarn that comes from undoing your stitches.
Why is there a hole in my knitting?
A common way of accidentally adding stitches to a knitting project is by wrapping the yarn over the needle when you aren’t forming a stitch. This is known as a yarn over and is used deliberately in lace patterns and other patterns to make decorative holes and increase the number of stitches in a piece of knitting.
Can you fix ladders in knitting?
Many knitters pull tightly on the first stitch of the new needle, and that can solve the problem. But pulling the second stitch tightly can also help even out the tension and avoid laddering. Something many knitters don’t realize about ladders is that they can be caused by both loose tension or tight tension.
Why is it called frogging in knitting?
Tink is knit spelled backwards, and it refers to undoing one stitch at a time. My knitting colleagues know that I prefer to frog, meaning I take the knitting off the needles and pull the yarn, undoing rows of stitches at a time. Frogging gets its name from “Rip it, rip it,” which sounds like a frog’s croak.
