Supple Rib Stitch

Stitch Description

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.
