 I found the absolute BEST help for Fisherman's Rib. The pictures work this time, too. I'm so excited I can barely contain myself. Here it is for the rest of you :

Just like someone else posted already, I'm new to knitting but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the rebecca wrap pattern!!!  With basic skills, time, and perseverance, (as well as a good stitch book) do you think this would be possible!!  I love it!

Oh joy  Cheesy I have managed to learn how to knit Fisherman's Rib!
FYI, the instructions which really made sense to me (and I'm very "Knit-Challenged" !  Wink ), can be found here:

I'm off to buy yarn, now...I'm so pleased that I can finally start the project!

The brand-new issue of Knitty has a wrap top that looks much, much easier to do - and you could always make the sleeves longer or add ties if you wanted to make it more like the Rebecca version.

Can you make the actual body of the wrap longer?

Here is my progress... I think it needs to be longer than called for  OR the back (distance between armholes) needs to be shorter. We'll se after I sew in the sleeves.





great! please post pix of your progress!

I have chosen to use the Brioche stitch and it looks great- I tell you all - FORGET THE FISHERMANS RIBBING!
It's totally not worth it.  I am a Brioche stitch chearleader now. It's the same pattern for EVERY row- so you will never have to keep track of what row you are on. I can give more benefits...

I've decided that I want this ballet wrap to be my next project, but the cost of the suggested yarn is making me cringe.  I'm kinda on a tight budget with my yarn, and was wondering if anyone knew of a really great subsitution that will give the same look and feel as the Super Kid mohair....or if it's on sale anywhere!:-)  Thanks
