Knitted Swatch of 5x1 Flat Rib Stitch Pattern

The 5×1 Flat Rib Stitch Knitting Pattern has five wide stitches of stockinette separated by one narrow garter rib. This 2-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is an easy level project that is a great choice for knitting up impressive blankets, pillows, scarves and more. 

The wide ribbing of the 5×1 Flat Rib Stitch helps allow this pattern to lie flat while keeping a bit of stretchability. This is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design, but the wrong (back) side does not. Please continue reading to get all your materials, techniques, and written pattern instructions to knit this pattern both flat on straight needles and in the round on circular needles.
