How To Knit: Fisherman's Rib Video Tutorial

This simple little Fisherman's Rib is a little more difficult than your classic K1, P1 Rib, but gives a wonderful, multidimensional effect to your projects. Use this easy knitting stitch for the ends of sweater sleeves or the brims of hats for its stretchiness, or knit an entire piece in this stitch for a thick, cozy winter piece. This pattern is also great for tea cozies or coffee sleeves due to the thickness and its flexibility. After trying this stitch out, you may never find yourself using the classic rib stitch again.

I live a good browse on this site and nearly always find something new to try. I had never heard of the fishermans rib before and liked the look of it in the image so decided to give it a go. The videos tutorial like all of the ones I have viewed on this site is excellent and takes you through the stitch in a really simple yet effective way. I love how the rib has turned out and think I will be using this on m next baby vest rather than conventional rib. Looking forwarding to putting this new skill into practise.

I'm so glad that I found this video because I've been seeing the fisherman's rib stitch and I've just thought that it was the same as the stockinette stitch! This was super helpful and I can't wait to try it myself!
