CLOSER LOOK at the Pique Rib Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a close look at our Pique Rib Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this simple pattern. “Pique” is a French word with the translation of “backstitched” in English. It is known as a stiff fabric woven in a strongly ribbed or raised pattern. 

This particular pattern is a 2×1 ribbing combination. You can achieve similar results with different variations, like 1×1, 2×2, or 3×2, with this pattern repeat, as well. It is not a reversible pattern, but both sides look great!
