In fact, the stitch combination produces a fabric with almost as much lateral stretch as a ribbing.

However, you should be aware that if you leave this stitch pattern unblocked, the vertical ribs in the finished project can close up together except where they are pushed apart by the purled welts.

In turn, this produces a series of prominent waves that give the illusion of having been done by a cabling needle.

Therefore, we love using this particular stitch pattern in its unblocked form.

Furthermore, a key feature of this gorgeous, textured stitch pattern is that it is fully reversible. This makes it a great choice for blankets or scarves and other projects where you can see both sides of the fabric. 

This free knit stitch pattern is ideal for the Level 3 - Easy Level Knitters

    Instructions for Row 6 should be “As Row 2”, not “as Row 1”
