Diagonal Spiral Rib Knit Stitch Pattern and Chart with Studio Knit

The Diagonal Spiral Rib Stitch Pattern creates textured slanted ribbing. This 18-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is really simple with just knits and purls but resembles more complicated cabling. Similar to the Diagonal Rib Stitch, this Spiral Pattern knits up even thicker for great dimension. I think this pattern would look stunning as a cozy scarf or pillow. This knitting pattern is an easy level project.

CLOSER LOOK at the Spiral Rib Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a close look at our Diagonal Spiral Rib Knit Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this simple pattern. These ribs create a really thick piece of knitting. The Diagonal Spiral Rib Stitch is a reversible pattern, meaning that on both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides look identical.
