Simple Rib Knit Stitch with FREE Pattern! – Yarn|Hook|Needles

Posted on Posted in Free Patterns


This post will give you the perfect stitch for creating super easy projects! One of the things I’m finishing  up with this stitch is a narrow infinity scarf. I wanted to be able to wrap it several times so I went with a smaller cast on.

One thing I really like is the texture of this stitch.

If you’ve read any of my previous posts you will see how much the texture of a stitch draws me in! I love how something can be really easy to work up but yet gives the appearance of being really difficult.

In the pattern, you will see how this is only a two-row repeat. There’s not a lot to memorizing the stitch which is always nice!



As you can see from the above photo I only cast on 11. If you were to make a cowl this would be a beautiful stitch choice !


  • chunky yarn skein
  • size 13 needles
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle

If you do decide to create a project using this stitch I would love to see it! You can share it here in the comments down below or you can tag me in your project photo on Instagram. Instagram is one of my most favorite sharing sites!

Multiples of 3 + 2

R1 : P2, *K1, P2, rep from * to the end

R2 : K2, *sl 1with yarn in front (purlwise), K2, rep from * to the end.

Continue along until you have reached your desired length. Bind off, tie and weave in the ends.

That’s it! See how easy that was! These are the best stitches like I said. It would make for an easy scarf project to start AND finish over the weekend. You could customize colors to coordinate with your decor and create a gorgeous throw pillow from it.

I’m dreaming of getting my hands on some of the GIANT roving and I would love to create a blanket/comforter for our new master bedroom design!

If you really wanted to take on a pattern design challenge, creating something along the lines of a sweater or oversized shrug.

Anything you make will be gorgeous but just make the things you love! This is what is most important!
