Regardless of splitting, etc. if you start from the end of your work, you should be able to unravel it from that point -- you just might not be able to unravel a single stitch or a set of a few stitches.

Get some good light, and a smaller crochet hook. Then starting unraveling your working yarn and see if you can undo any knotted ends. Sometimes with wool, it's not that its knotted, but parts of plies have interwined with each other and I have to pull hard enough to break them apart.

I hope you are able to unravel your work. Otherwise, it might be due for the round file. (trash can)
