You will need to become a "registered user" at TessKnits.com in order to download this stuff. (See the box at the top of the sidebar to register or login.)
Registering basically means I get your email address. I'm pretty much not likely to do a whole lot with that, either, but at some point I might send some emails — probably about knitting stuff — maybe whenever I post another download, or something like that. In that event, I'll follow all the nice rules about not spamming, once I learn them.
The files are in .pdf format, which is pretty standard for downloading files. You will need the Adobe Acrobat reader, which is free for downloading here.
Please do not share these files directly. If you'd like to tell a friend about them, please do — but I'd be happier if they visited tessknits.com and got their own copy.
Stitches: Ribbing — one of the first items in the "Stitches" series, this one-page tutorial includes some basic information about ribbings, plus stitch patterns for some of the less-common ribbing patterns for you to try. Also includes Mistake "Rib", a stretchy bind-off technique for ribbing, and a bit about how to accomplish "clean" or "unbroken" stripes in ribbing. Click Here to View, then Print or Save a Copy
