In fact, this pattern is just one of many variations of the ever-popular chevron pattern.

This particular stitch pattern has chevrons that are broken up by ribs of stockinette stitches at regular intervals.

Conversely, even though the pattern is a ribbing pattern of sorts, it is not stretchy enough to replace any conventional ribbing.

On the other hand, this creates an interesting texture that is ideal for sweaters.

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