Knitting Ribs and Welts

Amy Tyler

Sunday AM

Ribs make vertical lines; welts make horizontal lines. But there is much more to these knitted features than the direction of lines. We will cover many features of basic ribs and welts, as well as the effects created by combining ribs and welts, and we will cover variations such as cables, waves, and pleats. We’ll also discuss some ways to use these lovelies in your knitting to get specific effects.
