K2.5 tog instead of K3 tog

Oh boy do I need help. Working on a Marlogram scarf and found a single missed strand in a marled K3 tog. :face_with_raised_eyebrow: But wait, not just 1. After closer inspection I found a total of 4, 2 of which are about a million rows back. :disappointed_relieved: Any suggestions on how to handle? Part of my brain says they will be ok. The other part just squeezes its eyes shut and tries not to melt down.

I would be tempted to try something with duplicate stitch - creating a “correct” stitch that goes through all three - though I don’t know where this is on the scarf, so might not be a helpful suggestion - But take a foot of yarn and give it a try.

The missed “loops” are on the edge, so your suggestion should be pretty simple. Thanks for the suggestion! (I probably should have mentioned that for my Marlogram only one of my yarns is ombre and somehow all of the missed loops are from the solid color. Fortunate mishap.)

I agree and would try the duplicate stitch, just go slow and watch your tension so that it closely mimics the knit stitch and then weave in the ends from the stitch.
