Farrow Rib Stitch 

This month we are discovering new rib stitch patterns. This week’s square is the farrow rib pattern. It’s quite simple like most rib stitches. The farrow rib stitch is thick and stretchy reminding me a lot of a brioche knit stitch.

The farrow rib pattern is worked over 3 stitches and is a nice replacement for the knit 2, purl 1 rib stitch. The texture is great and works well with scarves, gloves, hats. I’ve worked the swatch above with 3 1 stitches. If worked over 3 stitches only it will look a little different but it’s still nice.

This farrow headband pattern below is cute and perfect for Autumn. I’ve added a few more patterns using this fun fast farrow stitch for you to try below.
