Yesterday, I shared my love of Anzula’s yarn called Cole, a luscious, thick yarn that lends itself beautifully to textured patterns. I tested that theory out with a simple ribbing stitch pattern. While definitely a basic stitch, it still feels rich with depth.

Gentle raised columns, stacked with two rows of knitting. You’ll love how quickly the pattern is memorized and how well it blocks out.

And that’s all there is to it! I think you’ll have a lot of fun with this rib in a large variety of patterns, from garments to accessories. What do you think? What would you use this stitch for?
