Knitting Patterns: riblines

Here is another knitted square that is part of my Shetland squares knitting project. It is a simple 1×1 knit/purl rib, that is broken up with line of garter stitch.

Shetland Squares Knitting Charts

The square was knit using handspun brown Shetland wool. I knit this with large knitting needles (8 mm) so that the knitted square would be light and airy.
No. stitches: 26
No. rows: 30
