Free Knitting Pattern: knotted rib stitch

This week's Sunday Stitch is the knotted rib stitch which will give your garments a distinctive look. 

3rd September 2017

Rib stitches make intriguing textured stitch patterns for firm fabrics that also require a bit of stretchiness. When added to the waistline and sleeves it can take a knitted garment from looking distinctly handmade to professionally designed.

Plus, we've made it even easier for you to share your favourite stitch patterns with just the click of a mouse - try pinning this pattern or saving it to your own library.

To knit the knotted rib stitch pattern, just follow this stitch pattern to the desired length:

As well as being perfect for adding to garments, we also think this stitch is perfect for placemats and table covers, or anything that needs a bit of texture to keep it in place.

Let us know what you make with it on FacebookInstagram, or Twitter. Or you can even email us at
