Thick, cushy ribs in light and dark shades of the same color (or contrasting colors) take on a deeply textured 3-D look with Fisherman’s Rib. This gender-neutral hat is worked in the round from the bottom up, using only one color at a time. It’s completely reversible so you get two different looks in one. If you love the look of brioche but want an easier way, you may fall in love with fisherman’s rib.
