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.
Can you undo knitting?
That’s right – it’s backwards knitting. When tinking, we undo the work stitch by stitch. It’s a safe way to unknit because all your stitches are sitting on a needle at any given moment. There is no risk of dropped stitches or any other accidental unravellings.
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 does the yarn between my needles keep getting longer?
You may be tightening a little too much on that first row, pulling the extra slack from the looser ‘loops’ of the cast-on stitches from the left needle, as well as the extra yarn from the completed stitch on the right needle as you are knitting.
