Double Eyelet Rib Stitch Pattern is a substitute for the classic and traditional rib stitch. It’s a good variation of the traditional stitch that will make the project you are working on look fancier. And the best part, it is a simple enough stitch that even beginners can learn.
It is an interesting pattern – it looks like a cable stitch but there’s no cable work. And there are only 4 repeated rows!
The Double Eyelet Rib Stitch Pattern creates wide ribbing that is ideal for making hats and scarves. It can also be used for edgings to create a bold fabric or used as a panel inset in the project. If you plan to use it as an all-over stitch pattern, keep in mind that it ‘shrinks’ across the width.
