Needles: 5mm

Pattern: Jewel Cross-Rib

Surprisingly simple to do and would be easily adapted to knitting in the round. No cable needle required, either – the pattern explains how to do this. (It’s easy, I promise.)

    Looks nice. Does this have stretch like regular ribbing at all?

    I’d say that it has stretch like regular knitted stockingette. It’s not a true ribbing in any way, really, so the name’s a bit misleading.

    I love this stitch pattern and I’m thinking I might use this pattern for a baby blanket :-)

    I am confused by the pattern – in the BW2 book it says multiple of 7 stitches plus 1, however rows 7, 8, and 9 are 11 stitches (7 stitch repeat with 2 stitches at each end)

    Rows 1,3 5 – P3, *k2, p5; rep from *, end k2, p3
    Rows 2,4, 6 – knit
    Rows 7 and 9 – K2, *sl1 wyif, kw, sl1 wyif, k3: rep from *, end last repeat k2
    Row 8 – K2, *sl 1 wyib, k2, sl1 wyib, k3; rep from *, end last repeat, k2
    Row 10……..
