This week we are doing farrow rib. A very easy pattern that produces a lovely texture (and I'm betting it would hide a multitude of knitting sins too)
It's knit over a multiple of three stitches, I'm casting on 42.
Row 1: *K2, P1*
Row 2: As row 1
Told you it was easy! But it looks impressive doesn't it.
I loved last week's stitch, "caterpillar horizontal" a very easy restful stitch after that week 4 "oblique rib" which I really needed to count and keep my mind on. They are good to do though because I think scientists are going to say one day that knitting patterns are an effective brain exercise for combating Alzheimer's (like crosswords)
I wonder if they have thought of including knitters in one of their studies?
I would be grateful if any scientists out there could pass this suggestion on.
