How to Knit the Twisted Rib and Garter Stitch

Twisted rib and garter stitch (see the following figure) consists of two stitch patterns that you’re likely already familiar with: 1 x 1 rib and garter stitch. The difference is that in the ribbed section presented here, you work the knit columns on the right and wrong sides of the fabric with twisted stitches for a sharp, crisp look.


To create the twisted rib and garter stitch:

  1. Cast on a multiple of 10 sts, plus 5 sts.

  2. Rows 1, 3, and 5 (RS): K5, * (k1tbl, p1) twice, k1tbl, k5; rep from * to end of row.

  3. Rows 2, 4, and 6: K5, * (p1tbl, k1) twice, p1tbl, k5; rep from * to end of row.

  4. Rows 7, 9, and 11: (K1tbl, p1) twice, k1tbl, * k5, (k1tbl, p1) twice, k1tbl; rep from * to end of row.

  5. Rows 8, 10, and 12: (P1tbl, k1) twice, p1tbl, * k5, (p1tbl, k1) twice, p1tbl; rep from * to end of row.

  6. Rep Rows 1–12 for pattern.
