I don’t know who “invented” the Mistake Rib pattern stitch so I can’t give that person proper credit. It is a stitch pattern that I recently discovered and being a new knitter, one that I appreciated. It looks great, and it is easy. It gets its name because the ribs are offset which really gives it an interesting look. If you are looking for a great take along project, then this mistake rib scarf is just the ticket!
You simply knit two and purl two across and end each row with one purl
You can use any size needles and any type of yarn, great for stash busting.
The pattern stitch consists of multiples of 4 + 3.
To make my scarf I used one hank of Malabrigo, Worsted. I purchased this beautiful yarn from one of my favorite yarns shops, Heindselman’s Yarn and Needlework. They say they are the oldest yarn shop in America, which is reason enough to visit the store. They are located at 176 West Center Street, Provo, Ut 84601
