This is a fun variation of the classic rib stitch: the Bamboo Stitch 🎋 it is perfect for cuffs, bottom edges and collars on sweaters, or even to be worked as it is.
Needless to say how easy this stitch is to make!
The swatch you see in the picture has been made using size 4 mm / US 6 Beechwood Knitting Needles (you can choose the right needle size adjusting to your yarn and tension) and BettaKnit’s Re-Cashmere, a soft yarn that is composed of 95% recycled cashmere and 5% virgin wool and obtained through an extremely advanced process that gives new life to old cashmere fibers. How cool is it? Not to mention, good for our planet! 🌎
