Fisherman’s Rib Stitch

Brioche/Fisherman's Rib Stitch

This is the fisherman’s rib stitch because of the way it is worked still giving that stretchy loftiness found in all brioche stitching.

Also, it takes 5+ rows for the pattern to really show so be patient.

I also recommend using a stretchy cast on and bind off method to allow for maximum stretching this allows.
