The Joy of Ribbing with Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby
Ribbing with a hook is definitely different than ribbing with two sticks. In fact, there are FIVE main types of crochet ribbing and we will make them all! We will explore crochet ribbing ‘round the front and back, sideways and inside out using post, slip, single, half, and double stitches. We'll even learn how to shape Horizontal Ribbing using short rows! Strong and firm or stretchy and shapely, your ribbing will never be the same again.
Topics include Reversible Vertical Post Stitch Ribbing, One-Sided Vertical Post Stitch Ribbing, Reversible Horizontal Post Stitch Ribbing, One-Sided Horizontal Post Stitch Ribbing, Horizontal tbl Ribbing, and Horizontal tbl Ribbing with Short Row Shaping.
Crochet kit with various hook sizes, scissors, and yarn needle; light colored, non-variegated, smooth (no novelty, fuzzy, furry, or fancy pants yarns) worsted weight yarn (no kitchen cottons or similar types of cotton yarns)
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
