How do you unravel a row in knitting?
- Sometimes there’s nothing else to do but unravel your knitting!
- Decide how many rows you need to undo, and mark this with a little snippet of yarn.
- Slide all your stitches off the needle.
- Gently pull the yarn so that each stitch comes undone.
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 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.
What does it mean to frog a knitting project?
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.
Is it possible to undo knitting from the cast on edge?
