Saturday Stitch: Raised Ribs

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

An easy knitting stitch with narrow raised stockinette ribs and garter stitch borders. Makes a nice decorative rib for a sweater.
You need a stitch number multiple of 6 + 7 + 2 edge stitches. Repeat the pattern between the * as many times as you like.


Row 1: edge st, k3, * p1, k5; repeat from * to last 5 sts, p1, k3, edge st
Row 2: edge st, p2, k2, * k1, p3, k2; repeat from * to last 4 sts, k1, p2, edge st
Repeat rows 1 through 2.

Difficulty level: Easy
