Fixing a row mistake
Correcting a whole row: 1. Mistake to be corrected: Here, an entire purl row was worked in stockinette fabric. 2. Snip a stitch near the beginning of the row. 3. Use a blunt-tipped needle to pick out the row stitch by stitch. 4. Place the stitches above and below the opening on needles, and work Kitchener stitch to replace the purled row.
