Basket Rib Stitch Pattern | Knit with Aabhar

Pattern Description

Basket Rib knitting stitch is a 1×1 variation of the classic rib stitch that creates a sort of waffle-like pattern of alternating knit, purl, and slip stitches.

As it is a slipstitch knitting pattern, it does not have too much flexibility and the knitted fabric is much denser. It is a simple and beginner-friendly knitting pattern that’s perfect for hats and scarves.
