The Jute Stitch is knitted in a multiple of two stitches and done in a two-row repeat. This stitch requires slipping stitches and also variations of simple knit and purl techniques. The slipped stitches can be seen on the right side while the wrong side features a gorgeous rib design. Even though it has ribbing on the backside, the Jute Stitch does not offer the same stretch quality as the traditional Rib Stitch.
Multiple of 2 sts + 1
Note: slip stitches purlwise.
