Mock Rib

Stitch pattern that copies knit and purl ribbing by having needles out of work. A favorite for knitters without a ribber.

Mock Ribbing is formed with needles out of work and resembles ribbing (without purl stitches and with less stretch)

Mock Ribbing is often one the first techniques a new knitter learns, and it's often forgotten or overlooked. This technique is worth exploring for it's ease of knitting and may be just the thing you need for your next project.
