As the name suggests, Garter Stitch Twisted Rib Pattern combines two stitches – garter stitch and twisted rib stitch. Each twisted rib stitch is separated by garter stitches creating columns of both stitches. It is a variation of the rib pattern but looks much fancier and complex, and creates a beautifully textured fabric. This 2-row repeating pattern is not reversible.
Garter Stitch Twisted Rib Pattern can replace the regular ribbing pattern in any project, or you can make knitted fabrics like mittens, hand warmers, socks, or hats using the pattern.
