No matter how long you’ve been knitting, at some point, your stitches are inevitably going to fall off the needles. There’s no need to panic though – you can easily pick them up, find your place, and start knitting again in no time. In this video, Jen Lucas looks at several different knitting configurations and explains how to get the stitches back on the needles properly.

Here are a few things to consider and do when fixing this common knitting problem:

1. Assess the situation: Take a moment to evaluate how many stitches have fallen off and whether they are still in the correct order. This will help you determine the best approach to fix the issue.

2. Check the tension: Gently pull on the working yarn to ensure the tension of the repositioned stitches matches the surrounding fabric. Adjust as needed to achieve a consistent appearance.

3. Continue knitting: With all the stitches back on the needle, you can resume knitting from where you left off. Take a moment to ensure that no additional stitches were inadvertently created during the process.

Remember, mistakes happen to even the most experienced knitters. By approaching the situation calmly and following these steps, you can successfully put your stitches back on the knitting needles and continue your project without any major disruptions.
