Ribbed Seed Stitch Pattern

Let’s do a bit of stretching today and learn how to knit a simple ribbed stitch. The hardest part here is knowing how to knit a selvage stitch, everything else is just a breeze. I believe that this stitch is somewhat ignored in the community of knitters, but in the creative hands it will shine like a new star – from hats and scarfs to blankets and covers, its texture and look makes it a hidden gem.

Knitting materials and tools:

<> DPN 4 mm (US6/UK8).

<> Super Corfou – 100% Acrylic, Color # 45, 40 grams – 95 meters.

Common abbreviations of knit stitches:

k – knit

p – purl

st(s) – stitch(es)
