Rib or Panel knitting stitch patterns can be used as an all over lace or rib, in combination with other stitch patterns to create or with stocking stitch to create a unique pattern for your garment.

Panel Knitting Stitch Pattern Instructions

Double Eyelet Rib

The Double Eyelet Rib Panel is knitted over eight rows. As only one out of every four rows involves lace making techniques, it is a reasonably good choice for your first attempt at knitting lace panels.

This stitch pattern can also be used as an all over pattern or as a feature panel on your garment.

This stitch pattern is knitted over multiples of 7 stitches plus 2.

1st row (right side) : P2, *k5, p2; rep from * to end.
2nd row: K2, *p5, k2; rep from * to end.
3rd row: P2, *k2tog, yf, k1, yf, sl 1, k1, psso, p2; rep from * to end.
4th row: As 2nd row.

Repeat these 4 rows.

Mock Cable Right

The Mock Cable Rib is a variation on a two by two rib with a small twist - literally.  To create the mock cables, the knit stitches are twisted every four rows!

This stitch pattern is knitted over multiples of 4 stitches plus 2.

1st row: P2, *k2, p2; rep from * to end.
2nd row: K2, *p2, k2; rep from * to end.
3rd row: P2, *C2F, p2; rep from * to end.
4th row: P2, *p2, k2; rep from * to end.

Repeat these 4 rows.

C2F: Knit through the front of the 2nd stitch on the left-hand needle, then knit into the front of the 1st stitch.uf

Moss Panels

Moss Stitch Panels are very effective and relatively easy to do.

This panel is knitted over eight stitches and ten rows and is a basic knit and purl pattern. No increases, decreases, or twists so it is suitable for most beginners!

This stitch pattern is knitted over multiples of 8 stitches plus 7.

1st row (right-side): K3, *p1, k3; rep from * to end.
2nd row: P3, *k1, p3; rep from * to end.
3rd row: K2, p1, k1, *[p1, k2] twice, p1, k1; rep from * to last 3 sts, p1, k2.
4th row: P2, k1, p1, *[k1, p2] twice, k1, p1; rep from * to lat 3 sts, k1, p2.
5th row: K1, *p1, k1; rep from * to end.
6th row: P1, *k1, p1; rep from * to end.
7th row: As 3rd Row.
8th row: As 4th row.
9th row: As 1st row.
10th row: As 2nd row.

Repeat these 10 rows.
