When I first learned how to crochet, most crochet sweaters and accessories either used knitted ribbing or found a way to work without ribbing. While some crocheters do still work knitted ribbing on their crochet projects, crocheted ribbing is gaining popularity and can frequently be found in crochet patterns. And that increased popularity and exposure has ignited a creative spark in crocheter’s minds. Now you can choose from back loop only ribbing, post stitch ribbing, extended crochet ribbing, and more.

I love the look and feel of single crochet back loop only crochet ribbing worked in sport- or lace-weight yarns. For DK and worsted-weight yarns I often prefer the textural look of post stitch ribbing. You can work the crochet ribbing first and then continue the rest of the piece by working in the row ends or finish the piece and create the crochet ribbing as the last step. There are so many possibilities!

Shannon Mullett Bowlsby has created an incredible video workshop that will teach you how to create seven different crochet ribbing styles and even show you how to shape with ribbing. Check out this preview from Shannon and see what others have said about this workshop.


I LOVED his method of teaching he does talk fast but is easily understood. I learned several new things that I did not know and I cannot wait to see what they bring next. Thank you very much. —Eva
