Free Ribbed Patterns to Crochet and Knit

Ribbing can be found on all kinds of crochet and knit items. You’re used to seeing it on the cuffs and collars of sweaters, the legs of socks, and the bands of hats, but ribbing doesn’t have to just be there!

Ribbing can be made in both knit and crochet pieces. It’s stretchy and elastic, so it provides a tighter fit than you would otherwise get.

Here are 17 crochet and knit ribbed patterns from Yarnspirations for you to stitch.
