Instructions are included for knitting all four versions. What they have in common is a distinctive, thick rib. The True Fisherman's Rib is a voluminous reversible rib, stretchier and less stable than the Half Fisherman's Rib. Instructions are also included for using recycled wool sweaters to make the flower and leaf embellishment.
All versions use size 10.5 needles and yarn such as Plymouth Encore Mega, Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande or other bulky yarn (3 to 3.5 stitches per inch) or worsted weight yarn, doubled. You will need approximately 80-100 yards (twice that if using two strands of yarn).
3 or 3.5 stitches to inch
I've always been crafty. In 2005, I got re-enthused about knitting. I've since developed a handful of knitting patterns.
