The only way to learn how to fix the mistake is to actually try, or find someone who will show you and then attempt it yourself.
We all make mistakes, I make a lot. Most projects have at least one 'learning opportunity'.
This shop sample was going along quite nicely until I realized that I had skipped a yarn over about 8 rows back. I could have ripped back the 8 rows and re-knit them but why not try to make the repair and if it didn't work I could just rip back?
Blocking will take care of the un-evenness.
The yarn is Cascade Casablanca, the pattern is Urban Lace Infinity Cowl. (A free pattern on the Cascade website.)
For those of you that really know me will be surprised at my choice of pattern, I have this issue with the 'feather and fan' stitch pattern. It's not because it is difficult, it's actually very easy; it's that when I first worked in the Yarn Department at Rickaby's almost 30 years ago the most popular pattern in the shop was a feather and fan afghan made with 4 colours of worsted weight yarn. 5 balls of 1 colour, 4 of three others...
Perhaps if I continue to 'practice' this simple pattern the better I will feel about it!
See you soon!
