Description: This is a lovely French design illustrated in bright colours - all of which was such a departure from conventional baby wear for us British in the 1980s. It's very simple but effective - the stitch is a mock Fisherman's rib where the "knit 1 below" rib is alternated with a plain knit row (so half the effort!). Note the tension of 50 rows to 10cm which is the effect of the Fisherman's rib "shrinking" the length compared with a stocking stitch 4 ply.
