Reverse Ridge Stitch Knit Pattern

The Reverse Ridge Knit Stitch Pattern is a fun series of knits and purls to make this unique horizontal 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, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series

CLOSER LOOK at the Reverse Ridge Knit 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.
