:) Materials I used:


:) Pattern, Knit Flat:

  • CO 16 STS, in increments of 3 + 1
  • Row 1 (RS): *K*
  • Row 2 (WS): *K1, P2* K1
  • Repeat Rows 1-2, until desired length.

:) Notes:

  • It lays pretty flat all on it’s own
  • It’s nice and stretchy, so you can use it for the border on a blanket

Broken Rib Knit Stitch – KITR {Knit In The Round}

Music by Ben Sound


:) Pattern, Knit-in-the-round:

  • CO 30 STS, in increments of 3
  • Row 1 (RS): *K2, P1*
  • Row 2 (WS): *K*
  • Repeat Rows 1-2, until desired length.

:) Notes:

  • It lays pretty flat all on its own
  • It’s nice and stretchy, so you can use it for the rim of a hat, sock, sleeve on a sweater, really anywhere you use a 1×1 or 2×2 rib, just keep in mind that this is increased in 3 stitch increments instead of 2 or 4, which might just be what you’re looking for.
