Single rib knitting pattern is formed by alternating knit and purl stitches to form vertical columns. It produces a very elastic reversible fabric that is generally knitted on a smaller needle, than the main fabric to keep it firm.

Single rib is widely used on the edges of pieces (for example cuffs, necklines and turtlenecks), where you need a snug fit, because it’s stretchy and doesn’t curl. It’s also very popular as the ribbed basis for sweaters, hats, gloves, mittens etc.
