Faggotted Rib is one of my favorite rib stitch patterns. It reminds me of fish bone for some (obvious) reason. I don't particularly care much for its name though.I knitted a vintage camisole using faggotted rib pattern (see image below). I'm planning to add the pattern to my knitting pattern page. Come back again if you're interested in making this camisole.
The pattern is so simple. There are only two pattern rows involved. It can't possibly be easier than this! That's why it's one of my favorite. You should try using it to knit something fun like a scarf or a hat. I think it will look lovely!Enjoy.
Multiple of 4 + 2 stitches
Row 1 (right side): K3, *yf, sl 1, k1, sso, k2; rep from * to last 3 sts, yf, sl 1, k1, psso, k1.
Row 2: P3, *yrn, p2tog, p2; rep from * to last 3 sts, yrn, p2tog, p1.
Repeat these 2 rows to form Faggotted Rib.
