Chain Stitch Rib Pattern looks just like the name suggests – it’s a ribbing pattern with chain stitches creating vertical ribs in the pattern. The chain stitches almost look like they are crocheted chain stitches.
The Chain Stitch Rib Pattern is a perfect pattern for knitting projects which require a bit of stretch and flexibility. You can use this pattern in projects like scarves, beanies, and even cushion covers as it creates a piece of beautiful textured fabric.
