At some point you will drop a stitch. It’s an unfortunate fact of life as certain as death and taxes. You’ll recognise a dropped stitch by a long tear in your fabric and a wayward stitch at the bottom. When this happens, don’t panic! As frightening as a dropped stitch looks – so sad and helpless, like a child fallen into a well! – it’s nothing to fret about. On stockinette and garter stitch it takes less than a minute to fix, and when you’re done no one will be any the wiser!
