The Rib stitch

(The video is texted in English (US-terms), so remember to turn those on.)

Here I show you how to single crochet (sc) in the back loop only (blo). When you crochet in the back loop, you get a nice Rib Stitch. The piece becomes somewhat more elastic, and is super nice to use for example dishcloths.

It is an extra good pattern for cloths because it becomes so airy, while at the same time having a good fullness. The rows will lie and “curl” a little on top of each other, and that is what makes it airy while it is full 🙂

Below you will find a free crochet pattern for a dishcloth and a small pacifier clip / pacifier holder / pacifier chain in rib stitch, which is quite nice.

Tips for the Rib Stitch

You can make quite a few fine patterns this way, and one of the best tips is that when you finish the row and have to crochet the last stitch, you crochet the stitch in both loops. Then you avoid the holes that often occur at the edge, and you avoid it being slackened at the end.

It is used on many sweaters as well, where you primarily use chain stitches (km), single crochet (sc) and half double crochet (hdc).

Enjoy the video 🙂
