unraveling stitches

After I had completed a shawl, I noticed that a hole was forming in the middle of the shawl!

I realized that I must have trimmed too much of the excess yarn where two skeins met. I was able to tie the loose ends but I'm missing a few stitches. I was using a double stitch.

I've only been crocheting for about a year.

How do I fix this hole?

Thanks.

re: unravel stitch drama

Hello,

in order to pick up dropped stitches, heres what you can do take the yarn you've previously used ,slip stitch it into the row that youve missed and continue where the pattern left off..
once your finished leave a tail up to two inches then weave the tail into the stitch make sure you go in the chain stitch straight down.. two rows. then trim the excess carefully..
