The Fisherman’s Rib stitch worked in the round is a similar and easier knitting pattern than the Brioche stitch.
Basically, it’s a traditional two-row repeat pattern, great for hats, and cowls without seaming.
Actually, in a previous tutorial, I’ve shown not only how to knit and properly bind off the classic Fisherman’s Rib stitch (flat or back and forth)…
But also, another version dedicated to those knitters that are not fans of purling 😉
And by that, I mean that you can knit and bind off the Fisherman’s Rib using knit stitches only… YAY!
However, I’ve received many requests to make a tutorial teaching how to do it using circular needles.
Finally, it’s also a two-row repeat pattern, although we’ll start with a setup row, which will be made just once, and never be repeated again.
So, without further ado, grab your needles, and some yarn, and let’s get busy…
CO: Cast on
K1bo: Knit one stitch from the row below (from front to back, insert the needle into the stitch from the previous row and knit)
P1bo: Purl one stitch from the row below (from back to front, insert the needle into the stitch from the previous row and purl)
BO: Bind off
The Fisherman’s Rib stitch in the round
CO an even number of st.
Set up row: *K1, P1*. Repeat from * to * to end.
Row 1 and every odd row: *K1bo, P1*. Repeat from * to * to end
Row 2 and every even row: *K1, P1bo*. Repeat from * to * to end.
These last two rows create the pattern. Repeat rows 1 and 2 until the desired length is reached.
When finished BO as shown in this tutorial.

I hope you love it and practice it, practice makes perfect!
Hugs, and happy knitting 🙂
