2X1 Broken Rib Knit Stitch Video

Learn how to knit the 2X1 Broken Rib Stitch. I also discuss the difference in the patterns when knitting it in the round vs knitting flat.

Video: Broken Rib Knit Stitch {Knit Flat}

Materials:

  • Size US 11 {8mm} needles with 24″ circular cable
  • You’ll need about 35-45 yards of a super bulky yarn
  • {I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick Yarn}
  • {Learn About Yarn Substitutes.}

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.

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 on a project.

Abbreviations:

  • * – * – repeat pattern
  • CO – cast-on {long-tail cast-on method}
  • K – knit stitches {K1 means to knit 1 stitch}
  • P – purl stitches {P2 means to purl 2 stitches}
  • RS – right side
  • STS – stitches
  • WS – wrong side
