Jul 12, 2013

It's about about ribbing on this episode of Knitting Daily TV.

Watch a preview of episode 1111 - A Good Rib:

 


Getting Started:
On this segment, host Eunny Jang demonstrates three types of knitting ribbing: the fisherman's rib, a cabled rib, and a knitting stitch pattern that incorporates ribbing. Seen here is the Diamond Rib Dress by Laura Zukaite, from knit.wear Spring 2013.
Eunny is wearing Chloe's Vest by Josie Mercier, from Interweave Knits Spring 2013.

 


How-To:
Crochet designer Kristin Omdahl joins Eunny for a tutorial on crocheted ribbing. Seen here is the Veronica sweater from Robyn Chachula's Blueprint Crochet book. You can download this pattern and crochet along with Kristin.

 


Yarn Spotlight:
Yarn expert Clara Parkes joins Eunny in the knitting lab to talk about knitting and crochet yarns that are great for stitch definition, something important to consider if you are knitting rib or patterns that you want to stand out in your garments. Seen on this episode is Tahki Stacy Charles' Zara yarn and Anzula's Dreamy yarn.

 


Quick Tip:
Eunny wraps up this episode with a quick tip for measuring gauge in knitted rib.

This episode was aired just in time!  I was racking my brains looking for something to knit for the grandkids.  The day before I saw a bright red scarf in the window of a gift shop & decided that was it.   After I bought the yarn I saw the episode where Eunny demonstrated a fisherman like rib (where you knit & purl, but knit into the st. below the current row).  It gives the scarf a higher loft  that I was looking for.   I'm so pleased with all the happy coincidences.  The matching scarves will be a big warm hit.

is it possible to get the pattern for that rib dress in the last segment? the one that  Ms. Jang uses to demonstrate measuring for rib gauge? its  in gray on the dressmaker's dummy.
