Knitting Encyclopedia Ribbed Sweater

Lion Brand® Superwash Merino Cashmere

GAUGE:

Approx 20 sts and 22 rows to 4 in (10 cm) over fisherman’s rib pattern. 

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

K1b: knit one below = knit into stitch below next stitch.

Sl 1b: slip one below = insert needle into stitch of row below next st as if to knit and slip both loops off needle.

K2togb: knit two together below = work next two stitches together as normal, but insert needle first into stitch below second st, then insert needle as normal through front of next st, finish st k2tog as normal.

Fisherman’s rib pattern
Row 1: knit.
Row 2 (RS): k1, (k1b, k1) across row.
Row 3: k1b (k1, k1b) across row.
Rep row 2 and 3 for pattern.

NOTES:

From the book: 

This is a simple pattern yet a very effective stitch; fisherman's rib is a lovely rib as it is especially pronounced.

Decrease as last row on every following 4th row until 61(63:67:71:75) sts rem.
