Ribbing (1x1)

Ribbing (1x1)


Rib has a very high degree of elasticity in the crosswise direction.
Ribbing is mainly used for neckbands, cuffs, sweater hems and any edge that should be form-fitting.
In the knitting process, when every other wale alternates between plain and purl stitches on the right and back sides, it is called a 1 X 1 rib, or a plain rib.
