Pattern 25 ( Rib Stitch) – Rib Knitting Stitches

This pattern is kind of jersey which is mostly used in machine knitting. 

Although making it is as easy as 2 purls and 2 knits instruction, knitting the first stitches may be confusing a little bit.

To catch up the pattern I suggest you to cast on any multiple of 4 stitches and knit at least 10 rows. 

There are two main rules at this pattern:

1. Except the first row which is the base row, in all rows instruction is repeat of 2P, 2K.

2. The stitch which comes up as Knit stitch , and the stitch right before that one, will be knitted .



Row 1 ) Knit 3 , Purl 1

Row 2) Pick up the first stitch, then repeat ( 2 Purl, 2 Knit )

Row 3) Pick up the first stitch,

             knit the 2nd stitch,

             then repeat ( 2 Purl, 2 Knit )

Repeat from row 2

About Fariba Zahed

When I was child, my mom and grandma used to knit during the winters. I was in 5 when I made my first stitch with my grandma's help. The excitement of making the first stitch made me passionate about learning it in the later years. Little by little, I found knitting really enjoyable and entertaining. Today, scientists have discovered knitting can reduce the stress level and prevent Alzheimers in older ages. Years of experience in knitting have made it clear for me that the best way to teach knitting to someone is through showing it practically. Sometimes it's hard to understand what the writer means when they are explaining a specific pattern, so learning through watching is the best way. Beside that, watching is common language worldwide. Here, I am sharing the patterns and models that I have learned during the years by capturing step by step videos. I hope this weblog will help people who have the enthusiasm of knitting and people who want to learn knitting for any reason.
