|Cartridge Rib Stitch in the Round + Cat = Cat Leg Warmer|
The blog seems to have received a number of search queries for instructions to the cartridge rib stitch motif knitted in the round. This is potentially the result of an earlier entry, in which I posted the stitch sequence for the basic cartridge rib stitch. This is available here.

Achieving the particular horizontal ribbing of the cartridge rib stitch in circular knitting is even easier: For the stockinette sections of the ribbing, all stitches are knitted in the round; and to produce the garter stitch sections, you simply purl all stitches in a given round. The width of the ridge sections depends entirely on the number of purl / knit repeats.
In the below sample, which immediately assumed a second life as a cat-yoga leg warmer and was very patiently modelled by Pickle, I alternated between three consecutive rows of knitting and three consecutive rows of purling.
