The Mock Ribbing Stitch

Stitch Description

The mock ribbing looks like traditional ribbing with a textured background. However, this stitch lacks the usual horizontal stretch. Using basic knit, purl, and slip stitches, this is an easy stitch pattern to knit up and creates a beautiful classic looking fabric. And with only two rows to work, it’s a simple repeat to memorize.

This is a great knitting stitch pattern for scarves.
