New Knit Stitch a Week: Ridge stitch

Ridge stitch

Teaching myself one new knit stitch a week, from the Complete Guide to Needlework book, c. 1979. I really liked this stitch. Just my style - very easy to remember, easy to stitch, and hard to mess up. :)

I cast on 16 stitches on size 9 needles, in Vannas's Choice (left) and a blue worsted weight yarn from my stash (right)

Row 1: knit
Row 2: *K2 tog all across the row*
Row 3: K in front and back of each st
Row 4: purl

The backside is also pretty lovely:
