The Mock Ribbing Stitch

If you're like me, maybe you like to make small samples to try new knitting stitches...
Here is a knitting stitch that I like. The pattern requires a number of stitches that divides by 3. For example, you could knit 45 stitches (15 x 3).  
Row 1 - K1 * P1, K1. Repeat from * until the end of the row.
Row 2 - Purl
Repeat these two rows as long as you want.
And I think the reverse is gorgeous!
My sample was knitted with a cotton thread, on 4.5mm needles, with 30 stitches. The result may be different (and that's interesting) if you knit it with another kind of wool and needle size.
Happy knitting!

    Très joli point. Je pense l’utiliser pour faire un petit tapis couleur blanc cassé.
    Merci de nous l’avoir montré, simple et très sympa.

    Très bien expliqué pour les débutantes…
