2) Supple Rib
3) Lacy Rib
|Week 21 swatches together|
SWATCH 1: Woven Rib
This stitch is not stretchy at all. It does look like it is woven, though, and it would be quite pretty in a glossier yarn.

SWATCH 2: Supple Rib
I had to bring out the big guns for this one. After reading the directions, "K1, K1 but leave on LHN, yfwd, P1 into same and next st tog, ybk," about six times and trying once or twice, I had to give up and go online for a video, which you can find here.
|Supple Rib Swatch|
This one wasn't stretchy, either. I guess because every even row was a plain purl row.
SWATCH 3: Lacy Rib
This one was a 4 row repeat, and it was a very simple lace stitch.

So that's it for this week. I have run out of Fisherman's wool, so I'm not sure if I'll be doing a Super Stitches post next week. I'm kind of on a yarn diet, but I actually bought yarn two days ago to knit my son a hat. So maybe I'll pick up another ball before next week, maybe not.
At any rate, the next three swatches will be:
1) Openwork Rib
2) Raised Eyelet Rib
3) Blanket Rib
Raised Eyelet Rib looks really fun. :)
(P.S. I did knit Vyvyan that hat, and I'll have him model it for you guys soon. I like to do outdoor pictures because my house is dimly lit and right now he's sort of sniffly and I'm keeping him indoors. It's really cute though, I promise)
