I've ordered a pattern for a cardigan for my baby niece because it looked really lovely and I wanted to have a go. I haven't received the pattern yet, but in case it doesn't have very good instructions can anyone tell me what the basics of Ridge Stitch are and if it's difficult? I'm not a beginner knitter, but I wouldn't class myself as expert either and I'm sure it's the first time I've heard of Ridge Stitch.
If you get stuck on this one I will try to dig out a book I have on knitting 'pattern' stitches.
Long time since I followed a pattern, from memory I think it may simply be made up of stocking stitch and garter stitch. Not sure what they are called in other countries (I am from the UK)- I mean a pattern that is made of just knit and purl rows.
I agree with this. I have a lot of good knitting books, but sometimes the photos are a bit difficult to interepret. At least with the video you see the stitch actually being made and can then go back to replay.
