|Single Crochet Raised Rib Stitch pattern|
Using Front Posts shapes this pattern. This is a Single Crochet Raised Rib stitch pattern. There is another version using Double Crochets but the biggest difference is how tight this pattern is. If you were to make a blanket, or another item, you wouldn't have to worry about any fingers caught.
I used a Double Crochet rib pattern for a blanket (below) and the stitches are much looser. It's very easy to get your fingers and toes caught but it is faster to make considering the blanket below uses Double Crochets.
