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

The Garter Ribbing Stitch is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design, but the wrong (back) side does not.
