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 my knitting backwards?
You can make knit or purl on either side no matter how the other side is seen, it’s how the yarn is carried. Between stitches RS yarn gets carried in front of WS, WS gets carried in behind RS. You may have reversed how you’re carrying. If you didn’t tink it back you might have picked something up out of order.
How do you unravel lace in knitting?
To correct it, work along the row according to the pattern until you reach the mistake. Insert the right-hand needle from the reverse to the front of each stitch at the same time and allow the stitch above to unravel by dropping it from the left needle. Rework the stitch in the correct way using the unravelled yarn.
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.
