An elegant variant of the well known Rib stitch, the Slip Stitch Rib is perfect for scarves, cowls, bags, blankets, and many other projects.
There are many advantages: The Slip Stitch Rib doesn’t roll up, it’s reversible, and unisex!
Ideal for knitting both men’s and women’s clothing and accessories.
It’s also really easy to knit, there are only 2 rows and few steps to memorize. What I like the most are the embossed vertical stripes, which give a slim look to the silhouette…in case you are thinking about knitting a pullover, sweater or tank top…
Ok… it’s knitting time!

Slip Stitch Rib Pattern
CO multiples of 3 + 2 st (i.e.: 3*5=15 +2 = 17 st).
1º Row (RS): *P2, slip the next st with yarn in back*. Repeat from the * across, ending with P2.
2º Row (WS): K2, *P1, K2*. Repeat from the * across.
Repeat these 2 rows until you reach the desired length. To obtain a stretchy edge, BO every st in pattern: *Purl 2, pass the first stitch over the second stitch and off the needle, K1, pass the first st over the second st*. Repeat from * across.
This is the right side of the work:
