Open Chain Ribbing Stitch

About this Stitch Pattern

The Open Chain Ribbing stitch takes a traditional rib and gives it a feminine twist. By incorporating simple lace eyelets the ribs are transformed into a multi-textured lattice. This is a great stitch for scarves and blankets and looks equally nice on men and women.
