Knit With Me 4


This week's pattern is called Oblique Rib and is worked over a multiple of 4 stitches.
I have already started mine using a very rich deep purple and I will tell you that I think a lighter colour will showcase the rib pattern better. If you have a lighter shade of scrap then I would recommend you use that and save the darker colour for a more obvious rib.
It is easy but to keep track of the rows I do like to sit and do at least the four rows that make the pattern. It's like a running rib in essense. I have cast on 44 stitches for this one.

Row 1: *K2, P2*
Row 2: *K1, P2, K1*
Row 3: *P2, K2*
Row 4: *P1, K2, P1*

Hope you are knitting along with me. Remember if you've just joined then click on "knitting" at the side for the other patterns and remember, it doesn't matter if it becomes a cushion, a knee rug or an heirloom blanket for a grandchild, its the opportunity to use up scrap wool that we are aiming for here.

  1. Your knit with me series has encouraged me re-learn how to knit, so thanks! I got some wool from the op shop and am about halfway through square 1. It's not perfect - a few dropped stitches - but I'm enjoying the process!

  2. I think these squares are great for when you are learning, not too big and they keep it interesting. Once you are over the beginner hump its great to have a bit of pattern to try that isn't a whole jumper! I'm glad you are with us.
