Q: What does rip the band-aid mean?
A: I've never heard this expression before, but the context suggests to me that it is similar to "breaking the ice" which I suppose could be defined as "initiating a social exchange"

To "break the ice" is quite a common expression. "Rip the band-aid" sounds like a phrase the speaker made up on the spot.

A band-aid is something you put on a cut or a small wound. If you rip it (off) you remove it quickly and suddenly, which could be uncomfortable (like a first encounter with a stranger)

Q: There is a rip on your scarf, you should knit it. Does this sound natural?
A: I think the wording is natural enough. Just be aware, culturally, sometimes we can be quite agreeable as English speakers and less likely to directly give correction/directions to each other.
Even when it's intended to be helpful. If it were me I might point out the rip. And see what they say. It might be that they don't knit, like maybe it was a gift. Or they may have been busy. Then if you're quite a good knitter and you wanted to offer, you could.
But every group is different and you know the context. It might be totally fine 😊
