In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit the Garter stitch Rib, step by step (it reminds me of the Ribbed Garter pattern, we practiced a while ago).
It’s super easy to do, ideal for beginners: The only techniques required are knitting and purling, and the pattern is made in just two rows.
Although, at first sight, the Garter stitch Rib doesn’t seem reversible, the wrong side of the work looks adorable too 😉
So, it’s the perfect option for scarves, blankets, rectangular shawls, and any other project of your choice (it’s a unisex pattern, so it can be used for girls’ and boys’ garments).
Besides, due to the frequent combination of knits and purls, it stays flat, an aspect that we knitters love…
Finally, in the video tutorial, I’m sharing how to do it in both, English and Continental style.
Ok, grab your needles and yarn, and let’s knit a beautiful swatch!
By the way, I always recommend the bamboo needles, but to be honest, the Karbonz needles are a beautiful option for beginners: They work with any type of yarns, they’re really smooth and pointy enough to knit all the lace patterns in the world! #ad

RS: Right side of the work

Garter stitch Rib knitting pattern
CO multiples of 6 + 3 + 2 (selvedge st); i.e.: 6 * 3 = 18 + 3 = 21 + 2 = 23 st
1º row (RS): K across
2º row: K1 (edge), *K3, P3*. Repeat from * to *, to last 4 st, K4.
These two rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO knitwise after a row 2 (RS).
This is the other side of the work:
I hope you like it!
Hugs, and happy knitting 🙂
