Half Fisherman's

 

Rib Stitch Pattern

The half fisherman's rib stitch creates a chunky ribbed texture with a bulky rib on one side and a more compact rib on the other.

Below you will find the written pattern, as well as a video which walks you through the steps.

 

Pattern:

First you will need to cast on an odd number of stitches.

Row 1 (and all odd-numbered rows): k

Row 2 (and all even-numbered rows): *p1, k1b

Repeat from * until last stitch, then p1

 

(Where k1b = a 'knit 1 below' stitch)

 

Just as an optional extra, if you want to add slip stitches into the pattern to add neater edges to your knitting, you can instead follow this pattern:

Row 1 (and all odd-numbered rows): slip a stitch knitwise, k to the end of the row

Row 2 (and all even-numbered rows): slip a stitch purlwise, k1b *p1, k1b

Repeat from * until last stitch, then p1

 

To bind off, I would recommend finishing on a knit row and then binding off as normal.

Thanks for reading!
