Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed Aran, 50% Merino, 25% Rayon, 25% Alpaca, in Teal

Needle: 4.5 mm / US 7

Gauge: 5 stitches and 7 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Sailor's Rib

Source: BW2, p. 4.

Comments: This 'rib' is really just a combination of knit and purl stitches - albeit a rather effective one.  It doesn't pull in, and there's not a lot of stretch to it.  But its easy to work, and looks nice on both sides, so I think it could be useful for a range of projects.  I wonder how it would look in cotton, mixed into a patchwork blanket, alongside other simple knit and purl patterns? 

ETA: As I was updating the stitch index, I realized I've already knit this one back in April.  Oops. :-\
