    Do you have pictures? Usually stringing through every hole distributes the tension from the strings evenly. Hope you don't warp your frame -knock on wood-

    Chances are -- if it's your own racquet -- it'll be fine. Granted, I don't recommend you do it all the time, but racquets nowadays are pretty well-built for the most part. Also (I assume) you missed the last cross meaning the one closest to the throat. It's better to miss that one than it is to miss the one closest to the top.

    No biggie, just play with it unless it's for someone else, then you will have to redo.
