What the heck is wrong with me?

I am in chart 2 (woohoo!) and for some reason I missed a YO 2 rows down. I tried fixing it without tinking back. But I am thinking I am going to have to.

I am so pissed. Because it doesnt look right now with the itty bitty mistake in it. Plus i will know it is there.

How the hell do you fix a missed YO? I lost like 2 stitches there!

You should be able to pick up the yarn between the stitches where the YO should have been with a crochet hook, loop that through the loop above and so on up to where you are. This doesn't always work, but with something as open as this, it should be fine, especially after blocking, when all sins can be righted.

Since what I've described above may not be very clear, have a look at what the Harlot did with a wrongturning cable which might give you a clue - you won't need to unravel as many stitches as she has, but it does demonstrate what you can do with two needles, a crochet hook, and strong nerves. http://tinyurl.com/esdqs and http://tinyurl.com/fh9w4

yup: I am still on chart one, but I have done the same thing: Realized there was a missed YO, dropped down and twisted the in-between bar (where it should have been) to make a YO. Good luck!
