Learn to Fix Mistakes – Class Cost: $10–20

Step up your knitting game and learn how to fix your own mistakes!

You will learn how to: unknit (or "tink"), take out more than one row ("frog"), pick up dropped stitches, fix twisted stitches, and put in a lifeline.

You should already know how to: cast on, knit, purl, bind off, and weave in ends.

Note: this class has homework to be completed before the class starts! See below for instructions.

Required materials: at least 25 grams of a worsted or bulky weight yarn in a light solid color (no acrylic, no plant fibers), corresponding needles (US 9 / 5.5 mm or US 10.5 / 6.5 mm), corresponding crochet hook (US I / 5.5 mm or US K / 6.5 mm), and a darning needle.

Please purchase your supplies at Cast Away. If you plan on buying your materials the day of the class, please come at least 15 minutes early.


You will start two swatches to practice making and fixing mistakes on, one in garter stitch and the other in stockinette. It's okay for these swatches to be different gauges/yarns.

  1. Cast on 20 sts.
  2. Knit 6 rows.
  3. K3, p to last 3 sts, k3.
  4. Knit one row.
  5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 until swatch measures 4" from cast on, leave on needles (do not bind off).

Garter Swatch:

  1. Cast on 20 sts.
  2. Knit until swatch measures 4" from cast on, leave on needles (do not bind off).

Spring and summer are our slow seasons, so we teach all of our classes in two weekly group sessions where students can learn different things at the same time. For this class, sign up for one hour (two back-to-back time slots) of either of our workshops on Mondays or Thursdays. You can also schedule a private lesson. If you already know how to do some of the techniques we teach in this class, you may only need a half hour to learn the rest. Call us if you're wondering how much time you'll need!
