By combining simple knit and purl stitches, you will create a basic block pattern that is divided up by raised, wavy, vertical ribs.

In fact, this gives the fabric a lovely depth and makes it look more intricate than it actually is.

Should you decide to block this pattern, be careful not to flatten out the raised waves.

Furthermore, this pattern will lend itself best to projects where the fabric will not be stretched too much during use.

This free knit stitch pattern is ideal for Level 2 - Confident Beginner Knitters
