Learn to knit Ribbing on your Addi Express Knitting Machine! A little ribbing adds a nice touch to hats, mittens, socks, sweaters, and more. This technique works on both Addi machines, whether you are knitting a tube or a flat panel.

I used this technique to add a ribbed cuff to these Mittens.

To what projects would you add ribbing?
Happy Yarning! 🙂

      Hi Lina! While it is not possible to make purl stitches with the machine, you can manually manipulate the stitches as shown in the ribbing video to make them into purls. This can be done either while the work is on the machine, as shown in the video, or after the piece has been taken off the machine. The only other way to make a purl stitch is to lift the stitch off the needle, pull a loop through it manually in the opposite direction, and place the loop back on the needle. For a few decorative details, this is not a problem, but can be rather time consuming if you were making a whole piece of fabric with a knit and purl stitch pattern. I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any more questions. 🙂

    I understand your directions. However, I’m still new to using both sizes of Addi. I really would like to see this demo with mire closeups. Since my crocheting is getting ready to retire me, i need to use the Addi. First two projects 1. Scarves fir the homeless, 2. A sweater for me. In my playing around, knitting a hat/beanie, someone else had a video in YouTube. I tried it, but it might fit a preemie baby. I need some serious instructions on sizing. I purchased your “Recipe” also.

      Hi Betty. I have a scarf tutorial that works on both machines here. If you’re looking for instructions on hat sizing, I have a tutorial for that here. If you’re making hats larger than preemie size, you’ll need to use the Addi King machine. I hope this helps!
