Day 207 and Bias
Interesting things happen when your ribbing doesn't match up. For example, if you continuously shift your ribbing pattern one stitch to the right every other row, you get this diagonal illusion without ever having to do a single k2tog. Knit and Purl patterns are excellent for beginners because of the vast range of effects with only 2 stitches. Not only that, personalized patterns are easy to write with just some grid paper and a pencil. Take the time to search out knitting graph paper if you can get it since knit stitches are a little bit wider than they are tall. This way you'll have to do a lot less fudging with your pattern while it's on the needles and can concentrate on just easy fast knitting.
