Ribbed Squares

This pattern is my own variation on one I saw in a four-square panel in the Witte Museum in San Antonio, Texas. To enhance the original pattern, I added the diagonal cross rib, but there are many variations that could be worked with this very simple pattern. For example, I have seen a fan pattern that begins with a si^-row rib pattern and then progressively eliminates two rows of the rib with each completion of the pattern. The visual tension created by gradually condensing the pattern is relieved after the tasi two purl rows with a series of eyelet rows. The ribbed square, the simplest Jive-needle pattern in this book, offers endless possibilities for experimentation.
