Broken Rib Stitch Knitting Pattern for Beginners

The Broken Rib Stitch Knitting Pattern creates columns of smooth one Stockinette Stitch separated by one row of Garter Stitch texture.

This 2-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is an easy-level project created with a simple combination of knits and purls. It is a great choice for knitting up impressive blankets, pillows, scarves and more.

This is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design, but the wrong (back) side does not. In fact, the wrong side of this pattern is the Sand Stitch texture!

Please continue reading to get all your materials, techniques, and free written pattern instructions to knit this pattern both flat on straight needles and in the round on circular needles. This stitch is also on page 11 of my Knit Stitch Pattern Book
