CLOSER LOOK at the Seeded Rib Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a closer look at our Seeded Rib Knit Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this simple 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.
