Free Pattern: Rib-It! February Block of the Month

Mistake Stitch Rib
Here is the second freebie in our Block of the Month series.

This one is from Rib-It! A Knit Sampler Throw, Part 2.  This is an easy block:  you only need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, and cast off.

Part 2 has nine different ribbed block patterns, all pictured here, ranging from easy to easy/intermediate.

Slipped Rib Check

By easy/intermediate, I mean that, in addition to knit and purl stitches, some blocks will require knitting through the back loop of some stitches, or slipping some stitches.

Beginners will have a chance to increase their skills a little at a time.
