How To Knit The 2×2 Rib Stitch

Knitting the rib stitch creates ribbed raised vertical stripes.

The rib stitch is created by knitting columns of knit stitches alternating with columns of purl stitches.

2 x 2 ribbing is worked like this:

  • Alternate 2 knit stitches with 2 purl stitches.
  • To create 2 x 2 ribbing, cast on a multiple of 4 stitches.
  • Then, work every row: *K2, p2; rep from * to end of row.
  • Repeat this for the length of your piece.

The Yarn I Used…

I made the hat using a super bulky weight  (06) yarn – Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn in Dallas Grey.

This was knit up quite quickly and used only one skein of yarn.

Any super bulky weight yarn 06 will be okay to use for this pattern.
