The Twin Rib Stitch Pattern creates a lovely, vertically-striped pattern that looks like ribbing. However, it is not really stretchy enough to replace a normal rib.
This stitch pattern is perfect for beginners, as it is easy to memorize. In fact, it is hard to believe that the beautiful texture is created just by repeating two rows over and over again.
Furthermore, this is a fully reversible stitch pattern. This makes it perfect for projects that will expose both sides of the fabric.
Another great feature of this pattern is that it does not curl. So, this makes it perfect as a border pattern. It will work great as a button band or as a pocket.
In addition, it can easily be used to replace a garter stitch or stockinette pattern in your project.
