Ribbing. Perhaps the second most maligned of stitches after garter stitch. Ribbing is the stitch that comes right at the beginning of the pattern that stands between you and getting on with the fun part. Or perhaps at the end when you’re just about ready to put the whole project away unfinished. And what about those sensible ribbed scarves? Can knitting ribbing ever be interesting? Well, I think so! How about cabled ribbing?
Or a fisherman’s rib with a few cables?
Or lace ribbing?
What do you think of the ribbing on this hat for example?
Or this summer top which is very bodycon so I spend most of my time breathing in – but it’s worth it!
So let’s hear it for ribbing!
