|Lacy Ribbing sample knit with Patons Silk Bamboo on US size 6 neeldes|
I was a bit unsure of which stitch to sample for this week; as I was looking back through the stitches already posted, I decided it was time for another type of rib stitch. So here is a lovely, lace ribbing. Very easy to do and with only two rows, easy to remember also.
Depending on what you are using this stitch for, I would recommend adding at least one more stitch on each side for a border; the 'plus 2' in the instructions is for edge stitches, but in my opinion would look better with a wider border, particularly if you plan to use this stitch alone for a scarf. If you just want to use this in a project where it will be surrounded by another pattern, then don't worry about the edge stitches.
Cast on a multiple of 3 stitches plus 2
Row 1: K1, *P1, K2tog, YO*. Repeat from * to last stitch, K1
Row 2: P3, *K1, P2*. Repeat from * to last two stitches, K1, P1
Repeat these two rows for the pattern.
And here is the video. Enjoy!
