The second stitch we’d like to share is called the rib stitch. This stitch is commonly used on sweaters and hats to create a stretchy edge. Usually you’ll find tutorials demonstrating this stitch worked flat, but we put a twist on it and crocheted it in the round. This creates an interesting protruding stripes effect.
It’s worked like a single crochet, except instead of inserting the hook under both loops, you only insert it into the back loop.
Chain the desired number of sts.
Rnd1: 1sc in each chain to end.
Rnd2: 1sc into the back loop of each sc.
Continue repeating rnd2 until you’ve reached the desired length.
