Slip Stitch Ribbing Pattern

On this page you will find the pattern for the slip stitch rib, and also a video tutorial that walks you through the process.

This must be one of the easiest knitting patterns you can try, so is perfect for beginners; it's a 2-row pattern repeat, and you only need to do knit stitches, purl stitches and a slip stitch. Simple!

The result is a raised vertical rib pattern, and is ideal for chunky blankets and scarves.

The first step is to cast on a multiple of 3 stitches, plus 2.

Each multiple of 3 stitches cast on = one raised rib.

Row 1 (RS): p2, *k1, p2

Repeat from * to the end of the row.

Row 2: k2, *sl1 k-wise wyif, k2

Repeat from * to the end of the row.

(Where RS = right side, sl1 k-wise wyif = slip 1 stitch knitwise with yarn in front, k = knit stitches and p = purl stitches).

I hope you found this video helpful :)
