Seeded Rib Knit Stitch Pattern

The Seeded Rib Stitch Pattern creates thick, textured rows. This 2-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is a simple combination of knits and purls. It is stretchy but holds its shape with the seed stitches between the rows of ribbing. Also called the English Mock Rib, this is an easy level project. I have a lot of great rib knit stitch patterns, so make sure to check those out, as well.
