This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the open chain ribbing stitch. This rib stitch is a great way to add lace elements to a manly scarf. The yarn overs create a chain like motif that also makes for a fabric that is attractive on both sides. If you aren’t familiar with the differences between the terms yarn over, yarn over needle, and yarn forward over needle, this is a good stitch to learn them. Use this pattern for scarves, blankets, or as an accent detail in a sweater.
