Reverse Ridge Stitch Knitting Pattern for Beginners

The Reverse Ridge Stitch Knitting Pattern is a unique horizontal ribbed design. This 6-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is a reversible pattern that’s stretchy.

Unlike most vertical rib stitches, this accordion stretch is horizontal. I hope you enjoy this easy-level project with a simple combination of knits and purls.

CLOSER LOOK at the Reverse Ridge Stitch Pattern

Since the ribbed rows are horizontal, it’s really stretchy from top to bottom. The Reverse Ridge knit stitch is a reversible pattern, meaning that both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides, are identical. This makes for a great pattern choice for knitted items that show off both sides of your work, like scarves or blankets.
