I love the look of the Fisherman's Rib, but you people who are thinking of using it instead of regular 1X1 ribbing, just be careful because mistakes in this stitch are very hard to fix if you go beyond the row they were made on and even then a bit trickier, but doable. Catch mistakes right away, or just don't ever make any.

I usually find them within a row or two and just unknit them, though I was able to pull out 3 rows the last time I used it and got the sts on right. I was just knitting the WS row though, not doing the k1b on it.

Right you are. I've been doing a variation of F Rib on a hat. Couldn't figure out how to fix dropped ladders, and ended up with gaps here and there. Tonight I just frogged the whole hat.

I concur
Every time I've made a mistake with this stitch, I've had to completely rip out my work and start over. Even when I drop a stitch....I noticed that when I drop a stitch and unravel the current row, there are actually 3 stitches that you have to insert your needles into to pick it back up, and they're all facing different ways, so I just unravel the whole thing.

But I'm getting better at your solution - just not ever making mistakes in f. ribbing lol

Exactly. I was just complaining at another thread about this. After frogging brioche literally for days (see my post below), I gave up and used a different but less interesting stitch. And there was no WS row, because it's in the round.
