Picking Up Dropped Stitches
1 In Knit: Insert crochet hook into stitch from front to back, hook under ladder of yarn and pull through forming a new stitch on hook. Repeat for each ladder, then slip last stitch onto needle.
2 In Purl: Insert crochet hook into stitch from back to front, hook over ladder of yarn and pull through forming a new stitch on hook. Repeat for each ladder, then slip last stitch onto needle.
3 Since it is easier to pick up in knit than in purl, for a column of purls, just turn work over and pick up in knit.
4 If after seeral rows you discover than a stitch was purled instead of knit, work across the row to the stitch above it, pull the stitch off the needle, drop it down to the mistake, pick it up correctly and place it back on the needle.
