For the diagonal ridge stitch you can cast on with any cast on stitch you like. Cast on a multiple of 4 stitches. This means the number of stitches you cast on can be divided by the number 4. Once your knitwork is finished you can also cast off with any stitch you like.

For the full diagonal ridge you need to knit 4 rows. So keep a piece of paper of something else nearby to keep count of your rows.

Start the first row with 3 knit stitches, followed by a purl stitch. Then knit another 3 knit stitches, followed by a purl stitch. Continue like this until the end of the row. If you have cast on a multiple of 4 stitches, you will end the first row with a purl stitch.

The second row is the same as the first row. Start with 3 knit stitches, followed by a purl stitch and continue this pattern until the end of the row. If you’ve followed the pattern correctly, you should end the second row with another purl stitch.

The third row is different. Start the third row with one knit stitch, followed by a purl stitch. After that you can continue the row like the last rows, with three knit stitches, followed by a purl stitch. If you’ve followed the pattern correctly, you should end the third row with a knit stitch.

The fourth row is the same as the third row. So start the fourth row with one knit stitch, followed by a purl stitch. After that you can continue the row like the last rows, with three knit stitches, followed by a purl stitch. If you followed the pattern correctly, you should end the fourth row with a knit stitch.

From row five onwards you repeat this pattern, starting at row one again.
