How do I correct my knitting after I have to take out a few rows for whatever reason without the row I made the mistake knitting differently, and therefore standing out.

I have been told I need to let the machine memorize the tuck card I am using all over again, but am wondering how to do this. When I try to do it, the knitting is a bit bigger, therefore standing out. The woman who sold me the machine, (they sell a lot where whe works) told me that I did not have to move the punch card back a few rows after making a mistake, and yes I have gone for two lessons with her, but her idea of a nice blanket is one that has a lot of mistakes in it, that she over looks, or is in denial of, so of course I would not give the blanket I made with her to anyone. I have a Singer 155 Chunky knitting machine.

If anyone knows what to do, please let me know. Thanks so much,

First of all, after you rip out the rows, lets say 2 rows, you move the row counter back 2 rows along with the pattern card. move the lock button on the punchcard to lock it that it doesn't move while it gets memorized again. on the top of the carriage is the release button, release the carriage so the top pops up, now run the carriage across the bed, if you were on the right hand side, go to the left side and back again, release the card so it will now advance, engage the carriage again, and continue knitting,
