Rick Rack Rib creates a beautifully textured and dimensional fabric. The cable-like ridges are created by working the stitches out of order… it’s easier than it sounds! Check out the video below for a demonstration.

Note

Worked over a multiple of 3 + 1 stitches

Stitch Pattern

Row 1 (right side): P1, *knit into back loop of second stitch (leaving stitch on left needle), knit into front of first stitch (removing both stitches from left needle), p1, repeat from * to end of row.

Row 2 (wrong side): K1, *purl into second stitch (leaving stitch on left needle), purl into first stitch (removing both stitches from left needle), k1, repeat from * to end of row.

Practice!
