The Beaded Rib stitch pattern is an easy ribbing pattern that can be used to add a little pizzazz to all your knitting projects. Worked over only two rows, it’s a simple stitch pattern, perfect for beginners and experienced knitters alike. In this video, Jen Lucas demonstrates how to knit the beaded rib stitch pattern.
One of the advantages to the Beaded Rib pattern is that it provides the same elasticity as traditional ribbing patterns. It’s a variation of the knit three, purl two ribbing, making it a great substitute for that stitch pattern.
BEADED RIB IN ROWS
When working in rows, the Beaded Rib is worked over a multiple of 5 plus 2 stitches. The pattern is only two pattern rows, as follows:
– Row 1 (Right Side): P2, *k1, p1, k1, p2; rep from * to end.
– Row 2 (Wrong Side): K2, *p3, k2; rep from * to end.
Repeat rows 1 & 2 for pattern.
