  9. Hi Staci,
    I love your patterns and tutorials!
    How would you go about fixing dropped stitches with kfb or tinking with kfb or yo?
    Thanks for any help you might provide.

  10. Nini – thank you for the note. I don’t have a video on this technique, but you can do it. Just study the way that the kfb/kfb-yo look in the work, and when you drop the stitch, you need to recreate what you see. It isn’t easy – I often choose to rip back, rather than fuss with something that might not end up looking that great when it’s finished. But it’s probably worth a try, if the other choice is to rip back a lot of stitches. Good luck!

  11. Staci,

    Just had a real struggle with correcting a couple of edge stitches on a garter stitch scarf. Gave me fits! Might you be willing to do a video on that technique?
