>Chevron Stitch Rib

>Use a closed edge cast on.

Row 1:

(a) Start at the centre of the work and using a 3 prong transfer tool, move stitches 1, 2, 3 from the right of 0 so that stitch 3 is on needle 4 to the right of 0, leaving needle 1 empty.

Transfer stitches 7, 8, 9 so that stitch 9 is on needle 10, leaving needle 7 empty.

Continue across row until right hand edge is reached.

(b) Return to centre and work left hand side.

Transfer stitches 4, 5, 6 so that stitch 6 is on needle 5, then transfer 10, 11, 12 so that stitch 12 is on needle 11.

Continue in this way until left hand edge is reached.

Place empty needles in holding position and knit 1 row.

Row 2:

Return holding position needles to forward working position, latches open.

Follow instructions in 1(a) and 1(b) above but reading left for right and right for left.

Place empty needles in holding position and knit 1 row.

Return holding position needles to forward working position with latches open.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until the desired length is reached.

    >Hi Aaron, I would probably use this as a hem on a cotton top or jumper. Cotton has no stretch so it can be difficult to knit a normal rib.
