Here is the result of my first k1, p1 rib on single bed. Had to reform all stitches is every other column.

Looks good, you are on your way!

I second that, will need a ribber or a G carriage on the Brother machine to make a ribbing complete on the machine, Marti/NE Ohio

Good start. Sharron

here is a great tool to help you flip those put it in the st to be flipped, move it from front to back and the purl is now a knit st.... you'll love it for both seed st and ribbing.

Thanks so much for your input. Very much appreciated. Those double ended latch tools look like they could come in real handy. Ribber.....guess what's on top of my wish list. Will be a while before I can afford one though. However I am happy to learn manuallly for now. Thanks again.

Well done it looks very neat. Also don't forget to try the mock rib, this is really quick and looks just as good, check it out on u tube-really easy

You did a nice job. Try Nualam's suggestion of mock ribbing, it is firm and neat and so much easier and faster than reforming every second stitch.

I agree. A garter carriage is a blessing. I love mine.

You would get a tighter rib if, instead of reforming the stitch, you left alternate needles out of work and then latch hooked them up after doing the rib rows.

Looks good.

I prefer this 4 inch seed stitch/repair tool.
There are two video's at the bottom of the page that show the tool being used.

The seed stitcher is a great tool! There is a standard one that originally came with Garter Carriages to make repairs and there is also a larger one for use with the mid-gauge and bulky machines. For simply reforming stitches in a column as you have done the latch tool is fine. If you are patient enough to reform please do yourself a favor and don't go down the mock rib path. It does not look as good as ribbing - okay I may have started a brouhaha, but really it doesn't. I may admit (but not really) that mock rib does have a place...

Brouhaha is very polite Jane. I agree about mock ribbing.
I am going to watch this thread with interest now.

Jane you're right. I used mock ribbing for the first few things I did on my machine but after I got the hang of reforming stitches I realize how much better they look. There's no going back now.
