How to Knit: The 2 x 2 Rib Stitch :: Knitting Stitch #11

Stitch Description

Another classic ribbing pattern, the 2×2 rib is often used for hems of sweater and hats. With a wider rib, it’s not as constricting, but still helps to hold your knitted fabric close to the body. It can also be used on it’s own to make sleeves, scarves, or cowls.
