CLOSER LOOK AT THE 1X1 RIB STITCH PATTERN

This 2-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern has a really stretchy texture. It looks a lot like the Stockinette Stitch but it’s really super stretchy and is identical on both sides. On the right and wrong sides of the work, it looks exactly the same, making this a reversible pattern.
