1x1 ZigZag Twisted Stockinette Ribs - Stitch Sample

Simple variation of the traditional "knit one, purl one" ribbing, where the knit stitches are knit through the back loop. The interesting zigzag effect of the twisted stockinette ribs is achieved by working them in simple purl stitch on the wrong side.

Difficulty level: Easy

Instructions

You need a number of stitches multiple by 2 + 2 edge stitches. Repeat the pattern between the arrows as many times as you like.

Work the right side rows (1, 3, etc.) from right to left as shown in the chart. Work all stitches on the wrong side as they appear.
