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 super 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. What will you create with your new Reverse Rib Knit Stitch?

CLOSER LOOK at the Reverse Ridge Knit Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a close look at our Reverse Ridge Knit Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together. Since our ribbed rows are horizontal, it’s really stretchy from top to bottom.

REVERSIBLE PATTERN

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.
