CLOSER LOOK at the Seeded Rib Stitch Pattern
These ribs create a thick, textured piece of knitting that is stretchy. The Seeded Rib Stitch is a reversible pattern, meaning that on both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides look identical.
Feel free to use any size yarn and needles for your creative project.
