In this video tutorial, Heidi Gustad teaches you how to "tink" (the word "knit" spelled backwards). "Tinking" is a great way to unknit/knit backwards to fix a mistake. Instead of tearing out your entire row of knitting, you work each stitch in reverse so you don't need to worry about losing stitches on rows you've already worked below the one you're trying to tear out. The next time you're knitting and you suddenly realize you've made a mistake, there's no reason to panic. Simply follow the instructions outlined in this video and use the "tinking" method to save yourself a lot of time and a lot of frustration.

This is such a helpful video for knitters of all skill levels, because we're all human and we all make mistakes!

I'm still learning, so I've had to tink quite a bit in my first few projects. This video has been a lifesaver! Any plans for a video about how to unpurl? (Lrup?)
