Comments: I'm suddenly on a kick for these very basic patterns - in all the fanciness of lace and cables and everything else, all these basic ones tend to be forgotten. This one looks very much like the side of a basket... (Note that its a faux-rib, because it doesn't have any stretch to it!).
What if this were knit very tightly in the round, for about 5 or 6 inches, and then you did a purl turning row, followed by circular decreases to make a flat bottom.... How long is it till Easter? :)
