Broken Diagonal Rib Stitch Pattern looks like repeating knit stitches slanting to the right. It is a type of ribbing pattern that you can make using the basic knitting stitches – knits and purls.
Unlike the classic rib stitches, this pattern is not very elastic. Also, it is not a reversible pattern, but it adds a bit of a texture to the knitted fabric.
Broken Diagonal Rib Stitch Pattern is an easy pattern to knit in projects like scarves or even pillow covers.
