Knitted Basket Rib Stitch

Hello Crafties and Happy Knitting Wednesday!


Today's stitch is known as the basket rib stitch and is a nice alternative to 1 x 1 ribbing. The texture of the stitch is thick and spongy which makes it great for cold weather wear like sweaters, scarves, beanies, and blankets.
