Fixing Loose Stitches and Snags

In this video, I show you how to repair loose stitches and snags in your knitting. (If you are looking for instructions on how to cover or repair more damaged work, please see my Duplicate Stitch video.)

Information on things you’ll see in this video:
The latch hook snag fixer I use can be found at most local fabric stores, or here online.

The little bamboo marking pins I use can be found here.

The yarn I used in a swatch is a wool/alpaca blend. Sorry, I’m not sure of the brand!

The sweater I’m wearing is store bought. 🙂

The nail polish I’m wearing is by Julep, color “Lupita”.

  1. Staci,
    Could you tell me where to find a blocking board like you have in front of you in this video. I have searched for blocking boards but don’t seem to come up with one like you have – the size looks like just what I need. Thank you.

  2. Hi Staci

    Happy New Year.

    I was wondering what weight (ply) is the white swatch you are working on. It looks a good weight for blankets. Thank you.

  3. Excellent! Nice explanation of where the knit stitch actually lies behind the other knit stitches. Head and shoulders . . . I’ll remember that – hopefully! Always something new to learn 🙂

  4. Staci, do you have any tips for repairing a broken stitch? I recently completed a lap blanket in seed stitch, sent it out to be laundered, and it came back with a hole in the center! The hole is small, but I don’t want it to get worse, and I’d lose half my work if I ripped out. The yarn is worsted weight acrylic.

    You are absolutely the best video instructor I have ever seen (and you should be a hand model.)

  5. Hi Charlotte – thank you for the note. I don’t have a video on that, and it’s actually a pretty tough thing to do, and really depends on the fiber, size of the hole, stitch used, etc. You may want to take your blanket to your local yarn shop and get an expert to determine exactly what needs to be done with your blanket. They may even make the repair for you.

    Good luck!
