Ribbing Subjects for Tuition

Ribbing & Double bed work
This a technique which is very under used. To most machine knitters the term Ribbing means welts, neckbands and cuffs. To the more experienced knitter doublebed fairisle or perhaps double bed tuck stitch can be quite an adventure. In the simple stages, variations on a plain rib such as cable or racking for the welts would open up new horizons. Ribbed skirts with many different needle formations; double bed Jacquard with different textured backgrounds and Slip or Tuck stitch with special needle formations. The permutation are endless. 

Sideways, panelled, pleated & ribbed skirts are many ways to knit skirts and all have variations with fairisle, tuck, slip stitch and weaving added to make interesting effects.

Tuck & Slip for Single & Doublebed Fabrics
This is a very interesting subject, with more detailed instruction on how to produce beautiful fabrics in Tuck & Slip stitch with advice on using them the "Cut & Sew" method.
