Often asked: How To Undo Knitting?

Can you undo knitting from the bottom?

If the project is worked from the bottom up, that means you will need to turn it upside down. This is the fun part. Take your scissors and snip the yarn in the marked row one stitch away from the right side of the work. Carefully undo the yarn from the first stitches at the right side of the work.

Is it possible to undo knitting from the cast on edge?

Yes’m, you can undo the cast-on edge or just pick up stitches. If you undo the cast -on, be aware that your new stitches will be moved half a stitch over.

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.
