For this swatch/block in my crazy quilt project, I knit a combination of the Knotted Rib and Broad Spiral Rib from Barbara Walker’s, A Treasury of Knitting Patterns Vol 1, page 49. This square is knit using Berroco Vintage Chunky in colorway 61194, Rhubarb.
The Broad Spiral Rib is a pleasant texture that jumps off the background. It took me a bit to figure out the stitch pattern, but it was straightforward once I understood what was expected.
As Barbara Walker says in the text about these ribs, “Either pattern, or a combination of them, is very good for heavy, fancy cable sweaters full of texture interest.”
