My cast on row broke!!!! after the afghan was 4 ft completed!

by Lynn Johnson

My original row, the foundation row at the bottom of the four foot long afghan I have been working on ….broke! I was worried that it was too tight, I forgot to CO with 2 needles. So I stretched it gently, but it broke. Is there anything I can do to fix this tragedy??

you're welcome. Forgot to tell you to knit some rows before cast off to make up for the rows you cut off.

Oh, no! I'm sorry to hear that. But don't worry. There is a way to fix this. You can turn your work up side down and start picking up stitches a row or two below the cast on row. Use smaller circular needle to pick them up all the way through and then cut yarn and ravel the unusable rows away. Join yarn and cast off.

I hope this strategy will work out for you. Thank you for sending in your question and visiting.
