This stitch is also called k2, p2 rib and like the 1x1 ribbing, it is also used for hems brims and socks. This produces a very stretch fabric. A little more stretch than it’s 1x1 counterpart.
I knit the example swatching using US size 8 DPN with Cascade 220 Superwash.
Multiple of 4
Row 1: *k2, p2; rep from * to end
Repeat this row until desired length.
Multiple of 4+2
Row 1: k2, *p2, k2; rep from * to end.
Row 2: p2, * k2, p2; rep from * to end
Repeat these 2 rows until desired length.
In the Round:
Work over a multiple of 4
All rounds: *k2, p2; rep from * around.
Again I had fun doing this one while watching a few movies. It was easy and fast to knit up! I hope you all had fun doing up this stitch. The next stitch I am going to explore is the Cartridge Stitch. Get out your needles and join me in swatching up this next stitch pattern.
As always Happy Crafting my Copious Critters!
