Knit with Aabhar – Open Chain Ribbing Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description

Open Chain Ribbing Stitch Pattern gives a feminine twist to the conventional rib by adding some lace-like eyelet elements. Unlike the traditional rib pattern, this one has much more texture.

Open Chain Ribbing Stitch will work nicely in scarves, wraps, and even blankets. As it has a nice lacey appearance, it will also look lovely as an overall pattern in summer afghans.
