Saturday Stitch: Chevron Ribs


Every Saturday I will share with you a new stitch.
Today's stitch is: Chevron Ribs


This is a 3 x 5 rib stitch with a twist, added by reverse garter stitch chevrons in the stockinette ribs. It's always nice to have an alternative rib and this is lovely on a sweater. You need a stitch number multiple of 16+ 9 + 2 edge stitches. Repeat the pattern between the * as many times as you like.
