Learn How To Make The Knitted Fisherman Rib Stitch

In this video tutorial you will learn how to make the knitted fisherman rib stitch.

This stitch is also sometimes referred to as the English Rib Stitch or Shaker’s Rib.

The resulting pattern creates reversible thick fabric that has a lot of volume and horizontal stretch.

This makes this rib stitch great for knitting scarves and hats as well as sweaters.

The stitch is a bit similar to the Brioche stitch, but does have a slightly different look.

We have included two different video tutorials:

  1. The first tutorial is created by New Stitch A Day and it demonstrates the “traditional” way of knitting this rib stitch. This involves dropping stitches as you knit one below.
  2. Conversely, the second video tutorial is created by Drops Design and is a “cheat’s” way and does not involve any dropping of stitches. Instead, you just yarn over and slip a stitch to create the same effect.

Personally, I prefer the second method as I find it less fiddly.
