The Double Lace Rib Stitch :: Knitting Stitch #102

Stitch Description

The Double Lace Rib Stitch is a relatively simple way to dress up the rib stitch that does not pull in the the fabric as much as traditional ribbing. The double lace rib would be great as a decorative panel in any project or could be used to add a little bit of beautiful texture. It’s perfect for a scarf just on it’s own.
