Frogging knitting, which is jargon for unravelling your knitting, is a frustrating but necessary rite of passage for every knitter. Knitting mistakes are bound to happen, and sometimes the only way forward is to unravel the knitting and start again.
It can be painful to watch all those beautiful stitches disappear with a simple tug. But once you’ve ripped back your knitting, a trickier situation arises: now that your stitches are loose, how will you put them back on the needle? Just jam them back on, willy-nilly? Absolutely not! There’s a right way and a wrong way to unravel your knitting. In this video, we’ll go over three ways to frog knitting.
** DID YOU KNOW? **
Knitters call unravelling “frogging” because it’s descriptive of what happens to your kitting: “rip it, rip it, rip it,” which sounds an awful lot like the sound that a frog makes: “ribbit, ribbit, ribbit.” Get it? Not the wittiest pun, but it’s stuck, and is now part of modern knitting vernacular.
