Cast on a multiple of 4 sts, plus 3 sts.

Work every row: * K2, p2; rep from * to last 3 sts, k2, p1.

Interrupted rib

The interrupted rib pattern looks different from each side, but both sides are handsome, making this a nice pattern for projects like scarves and afghans because both the front and back are visible. Figure A-13 gives you an idea of what it looks like.

Cast on an even number of sts.

Rep Rows 1-4 for pattern.

Diagonal ribbing

The ribs in this fabric slant in one direction when viewed from one side and slant in the other direction when viewed from the reverse side. Figure A-14 shows the finished pattern.

Cast on a multiple of 8 sts, plus 6 sts. Row 1: K1, p4, * k4, p4; rep from * to last st, k1. Row 2: K4, * p4, k4; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2. Row 3: K3, * p4, k4; rep from * to last 3 sts, p3. Row 4: K2, p4, * k4, p4; rep from * to end of row. Row 5: P1, * k4, p4; rep from * to last 5 sts, k4, p1. Row 6: P4, * k4, p4; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2. Row 7: P3, * k3, p4; rep from * to last 3 sts, k3. Row 8: P2, * k4, p4; rep from * to last 4 sts, k4. Rep Rows 1-8 for pattern.

Fisherman's rib

The fisherman's rib pattern (see Figure A-15) makes a fabric with a ribbed appearance but with more depth and softness than a standard rib.

Cast on an even number of sts. Row 1: Purl.

Row 2: * P1, knit next st in the row below, allowing old stitch to drop from needle; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2.

Rep Row 2 only for pattern.
