Test fishermen’s rib with cotton yarn 2

I made this one with size 7 needles; the previous one was with size 10 needles. The cotton is the Sugar ‘n Cream, Earth Ombre color, worsted weight; it calls for US #9, 5.5 mm needles.

I think I like the version made with size 7 needles better; it’s a little tighter but not too tight. It’s the one on the right; the left one is the one made with size 10 needles.

It will be interesting to see how they look after a run through the washer and dryer.

    I’ve never understood that whole “knit from stitch below” thing, but I haven’t really tried to investigate it in depth. I do know that the fisherman’s rib is similar to the one-color brioche stitch.
