Supple Rib Stitch

About this Stitch Pattern

The Supple Rib Stitch is a variation of a 1×1 rib stitch that uses a double knitted stitch that is purled together with another stitch to create a nicely textured fabric. It is a fairly easy stitch that is a great option if you are looking for something different from your basic rib pattern.

    The written instructions vary from the video. The video structions say to *K1 leave the loop on the needle and P tog with the next stitch, K1* whereas the written instructions omit the last K1 – which version is the correct one please?
