Our very own Jeanne stars in this knitting instructional article about how to pick up dropped stitches. We hope you enjoy it!

(Jeanne drops one stitch on purpose four rows down)

1. Take a crochet hook and insert it into the stitch from front to back.

2. Grab the strand and pull it through, keep working up the rows and then put it on your needle.

3. For the next stitch , insert the crochet hook from front to back and grab the next strand higher up and pull it through and pop it on your needles.

Tips to remember!

When picking up a dropped purl stitch - the horizontal bar is in front and you work the crochet hook from back to front.

When picking up a dropped stockinette stitch - horizontal bar is in back and you work the crochet hook from front to back.
