Mock Ribbing is a good all-purpose pattern, equally attractive in heavy or fine yarn. Superficially it resembles ribbing, but it has little elasticity and makes a fairly fiat fabric; the reason for this is that the strands woven in front of the knit stitches prevent them from lifting forward as in ordinary ribbing. The reverse side of the fabric shows a pretty ribbed effect similar to the Broken Rib pattern.
