Garter Rib Stitch is another variation of the garter rib knitting patterns (like the Garter Stitch Twisted Rib). It has very defining vertical lines that give the knitted fabric a sleeker appearance. It has a nice texture and creates a reversible fabric. This is one of the easiest ribbing patterns, alternating two stitches of knits and purls, making it a 2 Stitch Garter Rib.
As the knitted fabric is the same on both sides, it will be a great pattern to knit a scarf. Unlike most other ribbing patterns, it does not curl much. You can also use it to make cuffs and edges of wearables.
