SINGLE SIDED RIB

Also using Figgi Yarns Chic in Stone Heart
Example uses 4.5mm needles and has been used to make a decorative blanket 140cm x 140cm in size.

This is a simple and versatile pattern useful when you want the appearance of rib but not the elasticity. It is also an especially quick pattern with thick wool and large needles.

Cast on a no of stitches divisible by 3.

1st row: *K3, P3, rep until end.

These two rows form the pattern.
