The Fisherman’s Rib is an interesting stitch that provides a unique challenge to many intermediate knitters. Knitting into the stitch below the one already on the needle seems a wee bit counter-intuitive. The worst part, though, is that tinking, or undoing the Fisherman’s Rib can easily be a nightmare. Trust me. Been there and done aaaaaaall that. But, it is totally worth it – this particular stitch pattern creates a beautiful lofty fabric that suits a large variety of projects.

I just wrapped up a class at Recycled Lamb teaching my design, Elderberry Cardigan, and the students all clamored for instruction on tinking the fisherman’s rib. Seeing the need, I decided to make a quick video showing how to work and how to un-do that stitch. Enjoy!
