The Reverse Stockinette Stitch

Stitch Description

The Reverse stockinette stitch is literally the opposite of stockinette. While it is knit in the same manner, what is normally the wrong side is made public. This allows the bumpy texture of the fabric to be the star of the show. Often it is paired with cable stitches to help them pop more. It’s great for large pieces of fabric like sweaters and looks nice on hats.
