STITCH OF THE MONTH – December 2013
The Double Eyelet Rib is a variation of the rib stitch that creates a lovely texture featuring columns of eyelet lace. It can be used for edgings and cuffs where a ribbed pattern is required or can be used as an inset panel. The ribbing tends to ‘shrink’ through the width which should be taken into consideration if using it as an all-over stitch pattern.

It’s a popular pattern that is prominently featured in baby patterns but is also used for socks, scarves and afghans.
