Fast-Traveling Rib

Multiple of 12 stitches


This pattern is called "fast" because, unlike most cable patterns that work the cable stitches on only the right side (public) rows, this pattern works the cable stitches from both sides of the fabric. The result is a steeper slope to the rib -- it "moves" across the fabric faster. The trick is to get used to working the cable stitches on the wrong (private) side of the fabric.
Repeat Rows 1 - 24.
