Today’s post is to show you how to knit a wonderful Lace Rib knit stitch.

If you are looking for a wonderful alternative to ribbing to use in a knitting design, the lace rib stitch fits the bill beautifully.

It is a stretchy stitch with a pretty eyelet lace feature which is really very simply to knit.

See how lovely it looks on these fingerless wrist warmer mitts, both as a cuff trim and right at the end of the fingers.

We love this awesome rib stitch!

The yarn used to make these first warmers is Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky. You can find the free knitting pattern to knit them here.

How To Knit The Lace Rib Stitch

To knit the lace rib stitch, you need to cast on multiples of 4 stitches, plus 1.

The 4 row stitch is then worked as follows:

  1. *p1, k3; rep from * to last stitch, p1
  2. K1, *p1, yo, p2tog, k1; rep from * to end
  3. As row 1
  4. K

And that’s it. A really simple, wonderful looking alternative to plain old simple ribbing.
