How can I fix a dropped edge stitch?

I just discovered that I dropped the first stitch of a row 4 rows back. Is there any way to fix this without having to pull out all 4 rows of knitting?

How can I fix a dropped edge stitch?
by: Ratchadawan

I tried fixing a dropped edge stitch before but the result wasn't pretty. You'll have a section of a border that is narrow and tight. I wouldn't recommend fixing it. It's better to go back to where the problem is and start all over again. Believe me, you'll be happy that you do this. It's fortunate that you caught it early. It seems a lot of work to redo 4 rows, but it will worth your time.

Best to you,
