CLOSER LOOK at the Beaded Rib Stitch Pattern

The thin Stockinette ribs columns are separated by alternating knit and purl seed stitches, giving it extra texture and helping it to lie flat. This is not technically a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design, but the wrong (back) side is not identical. However, you can see that the differences on each side are both visually interesting and look great.
