Pattern Description

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 perfect for knitting projects requiring 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.
