Today’s Diagonal Spiral Rib Knit 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 Spiral Rib Knit would be great for a cozy scarf or pillow. This knitting pattern is an easy level project, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series. What will you create with your new Spiral Rib Knit Stitch?
CLOSER LOOK at the Spiral Rib Knit 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.
