How do you pick up a slipped stitch?

What should you do if you accidentally drop a stitch?

To begin rescuing the dropped stitch, spread out all the stitches on your needle so that the loose strands of yarn above the dropped stitch are stretched out and clearly visible. Then, use another needle (preferable a doubled pointed needle) to pick up the dropped stitch.
