Tutorial: Ribbed Stitch and Interrupted Rib Stitch

This is one of my favorite stitches that I have done. It is for the long loom only.

Ribbed Stitch

The trickiest part of this stitch is making sure that you wrap the loom the proper way.

Keep wrapping the loom in this manner for the number of stitches that the loom calls for.

Go back over the loom, using the same wrapping pattern.

Knit over.

Some patterns call for the loom to be wrapped in this manner:

Interrupted Rib Stitch

Start with the Ribbed Stitch shown above. Every so many rows, the pattern will tell you to switch directions. I am using green yarn so that it shows up better.

First is the turn.

Then you will wrap in the same manner, except you will be going opposite the way you were going.

If you use the alternate method, it will look like this.

After knitting over, it will look like this:


  1. I made a scarf with this stitch recently, it is SOOOOO think and warm!

  2. Yes, yes it is. I used it to make a scarf for one of the teachers I had for clinical experiences.

  3. Hello fellow "Joy!" Thank you for the tutorial! Do you find these hoops easy to use? I keep looking at them every time I go into Walmart and Hobby I need another craft addiction! Also, congratulations on your new bundle!! Tell her to wait 1 week and she can share her birthday with me!

  4. I absolutely love the Knifty Knitters. I could never get into knitting with needles and the hook tool you use with it is a lot easier to handle.

    Yeah, my birthday's December 22nd. I'm really hoping she comes before that.
