CLOSER LOOK at the Seeded Rib Stitch Pattern
These ribs create a thick, textured piece of knitting that is stretchy in a 2-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern.
The Seeded Rib Stitch is a reversible pattern, meaning that on both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides look identical.
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.
HOW TO KNIT THE SEEDED RIB STITCH
This stitch is an easy combination of simple Knit and Purl Stitches. Find my entire library of Knitting Techniques to help knit up this project.

Cast On and Cast Off
When beginning and ending Rib Stitch Patterns, you may wish to do so “in pattern.” This creates the ribbed texture along the edge for knitted items like sleeves and necks, rather than a solid horizontal edge.
Casting On: Alternating the Long-Tail Cast On Knitwise and Cast On Purlwise stitches in pattern to begin your project.
Casting Off: Alternating the Basic Cast Off Knitwise and Cast Off Purlwise gives the finished edge the same texture as your ribbing.
