Iron Knit Stitch Pattern |Published 09-28-2023
Here's a great little rib stitch that works great for items that need an interesting twist to the traditional rib. This could be hats, cowls, or other wearables that need a rib section such as a sweater or cardigan.
This pattern is not completely reversible, but looks great on both sides. The front and back both display a stretchy rib stitch where one side looks more like a 1 x 1 and the other side looks like a 2 x 1 rib. This can add additional texture to a project.
This is a basic or very beginner-friendly knit stitch.
Cast on a multiple of 4 sts, plus 1 extra stitch. If you like to have an extra selvage stitch, add two more stitches.
Row1: (RS) *k1, p3* repeat across row to last stitch k1.
Row 2: (WS) p1, *k1, p1* repeat across row.
Repeat Rows 1-2 until you have reached your desired length. Bind off in pattern and weave in ends.
This beginner-level stitch doesn’t require a knitting chart, but if you learn how to use one now, it will be much easier when you attach more complicated stitch patterns. This is a very simple chart. For more information on knitting chart, check out the knit chart tutorial.
The iron knit stitch pattern is an easy, beginner-friendly stitch pattern that is worked on a two-row repeat and a stitch pattern of 4 + 1.
While not exactly reversible, both sides create a beautiful rib pattern that perfect for a project that needs something a bit more fancy than the typical one by one rib pattern.
