Knitted diagonal ribbing looks like stair steps. The diagonal ribbing in this fabric slants diagonally in one direction when viewed from one side and slants in the other direction when viewed from the reverse side.

Try your hand at knitting a sample of diagonal ribbing:

  1. Cast on a multiple of 8 sts, plus 6 sts.

  2. Follow this stitch pattern:

    Row 1: K1, p4, * k4, p4; rep from * to last st, k1.

    Row 2: K4, * p4, k4; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2.

    Row 3: K3, * p4, k4; rep from * to last 3 sts, p3.

    Row 4: K2, p4, * k4, p4; rep from * to end of row.

    Row 5: P1, * k4, p4; rep from * to last 5 sts, k4, p1.

    Row 6: P4, * k4, p4; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.

    Row 7: P3, * k3, p4; rep from * to last 3 sts, k3.
