Wide Chunky Textured Rib Crochet Pattern
This pattern is relatively simple and yet very effective.The pattern an be used to make ribbing at the botom of jumpers, sewters etc. It could be used on cuffs or as a cushion too.
Note: Please be sure that you understand how to work into a front post and a back post in double or triple crochet before attempting the pattern. If you are not familiar with this also known as post-stitch ribbing then please click here for instructions and diagrams.
Use any yarn and the appropriate recommended hook size. Here I worked on multiples of five + 2 ch to count as 1st dc. However it will work on any number of stitches. It is pictured here in dc but will work equally as well in tr.
Ch the desired amount to achieve width required + 2 (to count as first dc.
Row 1: dc into all ch
Row 2: ch 2 (to count as first dc) dc into next 4 sts, *fpdc into next 5 sts, dc into next 5 sts*, ** rep to end.
Row 3: ch 2 (to count as first dc) dc into next 4 sts, *bpdc into next 5 sts, dc into next 5 sts*, ** rep to end.
Work the next two row continuosly until desired legth is reached.
I actually like the reverse side of the pattern as much as the front side, see below.
