Shaker stitch knitting pattern (Half Fisherman’s Rib)

Easier than the classic Fisherman’s Rib stitch, the Shaker stitch (aka Half Fisherman’s Rib) is ideal for beginners. 

It’s a simple two-row repeat pattern, and there is only one step to memorize; the odd rows are just knit rows. 

This version is a delicate pattern, less spongy than the original one, and it doesn’t curl either.

The Shaker stitch, reversible and unisex, is perfect for knitting women’s and men’s scarves, cowls, sweaters, blankets, but also baby garments.

Let’s get started!


CO: Cast on

RS: Right side of the work

st: Stitch

K: Knit

K1bo: Knit one stitch from the row below (insert the needle in the stitch form the previous row and knit).

P: Purl

BO: Bind off

CO an even number of stitches.

1º row: K across

2º row (RS): *P1, K1bo*. Repeat from * to *, to the end.

These two rows form the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.

When finished, BO knitwise, after a row 2.
