How to Knit Pique Rib Stitch

Pique Rib Stitch is a lovely simple 4 row repeat that creates bags of lovely symmetrical texture. With only a 3 stitch pattern repeat, this stich is a great one to tackle as an adventurous beginner and really produce something that looks a lot more complex than it is.

Pique Rib Stitch isn't a reversible stitch, but the pattern on the reverse side still gives you bags of texture and interest, making patterns like scarves or cowls a great option in this stitch as both sides of your work will look gorgeous.
