The chevron rib stitch is another quick pattern to master as it only has four repeating rows and two of them are straight purl rows. I have rated this one intermediate though because as with other lace/eyelet stitches, you do have to knit stitches together, slip stitches and pass the slip stitches over.

Skill level: Intermediate

7 Stitch pattern repeat.

You can use any weight yarn along with the appropriate size needles for that particular yarn. A suggestion of needle sizes often is posted on the yarn label (wrapper).
