Maintaining the look of ribbing when you are increasing can be tricky. Half fisherman's rib in particular creates a thick, squishy fabric that makes for an extra cozy garment or accessory, but requires a slightly different increase method. In this video tutorial, we show how to create an increase in half fisherman's rib.
Don't forget the yarn over during your increase so that when you've completed the stitch, you have actually added two loops to your needles. This allows you to maintain your knit below, purl pattern.
Increasing in half fisherman's rib doesn't require any fancy skills, just a little extra care. After learning this technique, you'll quickly be able to begin shaping your squishy projects!
