In today’s tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit and bind off the Fisherman’s Rib using only knit stitches (no purling required, yay!!!).
Similar to the original one, we practiced a while ago, this version is simply brilliant!
Well… this pattern features everything we knitters love:
First of all, it’s a one-row repeat pattern: We’ll start with a setup row which will be done just once, and from there, there is only one row to repeat until the project is finished.
Secondly, it’s pretty easy to knit: There are only two steps to memorize. Could not be easier!
In third place, it’s a totally reversible pattern (identical on both sides).
Last but not least, it doesn’t curl, no matter what you do 🙂
In summary, the Fisherman’s Rib stitch is a great pattern for scarves, wraps, hats, blankets, infinite cowls, and sweaters or cardigans.
Ok, let’s get busy!
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
K1bo: Knit one stitch from the row below (insert the needle in the stitch from the previous row and knit).
passo: pass the stitch over
BO: Bind off
Fisherman’s Rib knitting pattern (no purling required)
CO multiples of 2 (this number includes 2 edge stitches).
Setup row (RS): K across
1º and only row: K1 (edge), *K1, K1bo*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1.
This last row creates the pattern. Repeat until the desired length is reached.
When finished BO after a row 2 (RS), as shown in the video tutorial.
The demonstration below shows both, English and Continental style, enjoy!
Thank you for watching!
Hugs, and happy knitting
