We’ve been talking about rib stitches this month and there are tons of ribbing stitches to try. We discussed the 1 x 1 garter rib already, but what if you wanted a 2 x 2 garter rib? It’s simple enough to alter ribbing patterns depending on what width of ribbing you prefer.

Rib stitch patterns are the best way to create stretch in your projects. Plus, ribbing patterns are reversible making them great for scarves or any project where you want both sides to look amazing. After knitting the double garter and the textured garter squares for this weeks 52-week sampler afghan I fell in love. This year all the men in my family will be getting ribbed scarves. Each scarf will be a different pattern based on these stitches.

Whenever you want a more form fitting area just add some ribbing. This is a good reason to have as many types of rib stitches in your arsenal as possible. To add the perfect to touch to your projects, just add a little ribbing to a waistline and the sweater takes on a whole new look. They also create a great striping effect on your knits for a uniform design.

I really love the textures of these rib patterns and I have looked around to find some patterns for you to try. Always remember for a scarf you can knit across 35 stitches for as long as you want. To create a simple scarf. Add some fringe and you didn’t need a pattern at all.
