[Knitting] Can someone tell me what I did wrong here (photo)?

I make this mistake every now and again (see photo) usually by the time I notice it I've gone several rows. I've tried fixing it as you would a drop stitch  (dropping the stitches down to the affected row then picking them back up) which obviously it doesn't work or I wouldn't be asking lol. It's more noticeable on the purl side (photo) ob the the knit side the stitches appear slightly larger than the rest.

Can someone tell me what I've done wrong and how to fix it?

Don't worry about it, as soon as you have right amount of stitches and rows. After you've blocked the garment most probably it will be gone. If it still bothers you, take a blunt needle gently pull the stitches near the biggest one. That way you can even the stitch tension.

Thanks for responding. So...it's a tension problem?  Post time 2015-12-11 05:20

It's your tension - you've slackened your tension at least 4 stitches before that stitch and at least 2 afterwards. An even tension does come with practice............. Try doing what Sebnem suggests.... washing and blocking a garment does even out a lot of minor errors...........

Had to lie low for a time - and also many problems here so no time to play or knit! Will catch up soon, fingers crossed....................  Post time 2015-12-12 05:07
Thanks LL :) My tension has gotten a lot better since I've learned to knit continental, so those 5 stitches really stick out like a sore thumb. Makes me crazy! P.S.Where you been hiding?  Post time 2015-12-11 06:39

If you are sure you didn't missed stitch when you dropped and re-picked them for fixing purpose, it is a tension problem.  As I see from the photo garter ridge count is correct so I believe you don't have missing stitch issue.

Going to try to do what you said above (blunt needle). Thank you again!  Post time 2015-12-11 06:41

I think you are going the wrong way when you picked it up. You can see one line more the right way. I hope you understand it.

Just stick another needle in there and try to pick the stitch up (stretch it a ltitle), it's the tension.
