Class Hours: 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Instructor: Terry King

Class Description: Ripping back is frustrating and often unnecessary! Learn to recognize correctly worked stitches and what to do when things don’t look right or definitely go horribly wrong! Learn how to un-knit (aka tink), pickup dropped stitches, untwist stitches and yarn overs, add or remove yarn overs, and other useful techniques for when a stitch just doesn’t look right.

Material Needed:

  • Two swatches See Homework below for details.
  • Handi-tool or crochet hook in size G or H.
  • Tapestry or Darning needle.

Skills you should have: Beginning level through purl stitch

Skills you will learn: Ripping, tinking (unknitting), picking up dropped stitches, correcting various types of typical errors like twisted stitches and changing stitches from knits to purl or purls to knits.


Knit two swatches and leave them on the needles with working yarn still attached:

  • Use smooth, plied, worsted weight yarn in a solid, light color.
  • Both swatches should be approx 30 to 40 stitches wide and 4” high.
  • Leave them on the needles with working yarn still attached.
  • Swatch #1 work in stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side)
  • Swatch #2 using another set of needles work in garter stitches (knit on both sides)
