Double Broken Rib

            We've reached the end of our broken rib patterns! Sorry for the break in posts, but my laptop is down the chopshop to have the lid repaired, (the top is coming away from the left hinge D:) so I'm posting from my phone for now (which is a bloody nightmare as blogger doesn't properly from at on androids). 

Alright back to the stitch it's basically the same as broken rib but works for a 2x2 rib, and is worked over 4 rows rather than 2. It has a more blocky look than collumny look and the reverse just like in regular broken rib is bobbly on the reverse.
