Although it may look like a rib, this stitch pattern is actually a fascinating loop-d-loop texture made by casting on the long way and working horizontally. The pattern is a one-row repeat with some fun extras, like double yarn overs and k2togs… Just to keep things interesting!

NOTES

First Loop vs Second Loop

In this pattern, you will create a “first” and “second loop” by wrapping the yarn twice around the needle when you make a knit stitch (kind of like a double yarn over). The two loops will inevitably get a little mixed up and crossed over each as you work, but that’s okay! Just keep in mind that the “first loop” is the one that comes up from the next stitch of the previous row, and the second loop is the loose strand that follows it.

Number of Stitches

You can work this pattern over any number of stitches.

PATTERN

Using a Long Tail Cast On, cast on 455 stitches. TIP: Place a marker or piece of scrap yarn every 50 stitches, so when you lose count, you won’t have to recount from the beginning! Remove the markers when you work the first row.

Set-Up Row: Slip 1 knitwise with yarn in back (wyib), k1, *k1 (wrapping yarn twice around needle), repeat from * to last stitch, p1. [907 stitches]

Row 1: Slip 1 knitwise wyib, knit first loop of next stitch (leaving second loop on needle), *knit first loop of next stitch together with second loop of previous stitch (wrapping yarn twice and leaving second loop of next stitch on needle), repeat from * to last stitch, p1. [907 stitches]

Repeat Row 1 until piece measures 18 inches from cast-on row.

Next Row: Slip 1 knitwise wyib, knit first loop of next stitch (leaving second loop on needle), *knit first loop of next stitch together with second loop of previous stitch (wrapping yarn once and leaving second loop of next stitch on needle), repeat from * to last stitch, p1. [455 stitches]
