Comments:  This is still a very loose rib.  I would recommend it as a stitch pattern for the body of a garment, not the edges.  The back of the Lace Rib is also very attractive and has a severe vertical effect.  I think it too would make a good garment body pattern. (See WS photo below)

    The reverse side is surprisingly attractive, as you say! It’s surprising how much the character of the block changes from front to back.
