Broken Rib Stitch

[socialpug_share ]

About This Stitch Pattern

The broken rib is a variation on traditional knit ribbing. This knitting pattern takes the 1×1 rib and gives it a twist by inserting a column seed stitch between the ribs. This breaks up the pattern, giving it an interesting texture. The broken rib stitch looks like regular ribbing, but it does not have the same level of horizontal stretch.

Use this stitch in anything that you would normally place ribbing for a unique look. It also works well on its own in scarves, blankets, and hats.
