sc rib stitch long

I used Paintbox Double Knitting yarn and a 5.50mm Clover crochet hook for
the sample piece, just to be able to give it some flexibility.

Make an even number chain length + 1.

1st Row – 1sc/dc in 2nd ch from hook, 1sc/dc in each ch to end. Turn.

Pattern Row – Working in BLO (see abbrev) ch1, 1sc/dc in base of ch1,
1sc/dc in each st to end. Turn.

Rpt Pattern Row to desired length.

If using this stitch for a rib, after crocheting it you will then work in the row ends
of one side of your made rib as per pattern instructions.

I have used this pattern for many of my baby items and projects, so hope you
