A fast knit for yourself or as a gift. Simple yet impressive! With two sizes small and large. Our pattern is a 4x4 Diagonal Rib Stitch, inspired by a pattern found in Barbara G. Walker’s “A Treasury of Knitting Patterns”
The top picture is using Amanda’s handspun yarn, the lower picture is using Malabrigo Twist.
This pattern uses multiples of 8 + or - 1 stitch. You can alter the pattern to suit your needs or creative tendencies. If you’d like a 2x2 rib, you’d multiply 2 by the number of repeats you’d like for our pattern we’ve used (16 repeats of 8 )-1. The long size is simply doubled. Try a 3x3 rib or a 5x5. The possibilities are endless.
Cast on 127 (255) and join in the round. Row 1: Knit all sts.
Row 2: Purl all sts.
Row 3: Knit all sts.
Begin working in pattern as follows:
K4, P4 for 7 inches or to your desired width.
Repeat rows 1-3.
Bind off loosely and enjoy!
