If you want a pattern that makes the traditional and classic rib stitch more feminine, the Large Eyelet Rib Stitch is a great choice! It creates a ribbing pattern with large eyelets giving it a lace-type fabric texture.
Just like the Double Eyelet Rib Stitch Pattern, this one also looks like a cable stitch, but there are no cables.
The Large Eyelet Rib Stitch Pattern will be a great choice of pattern in blankets, shawls, and cowls. It can also work in projects where you want to make your ribbing more fancy and feminine.
