Rib knitting is perfect for projects that need stretch. Think: the brim of a hat; sleeve, sock and mitten cuffs; and even the collars around sweaters. When you need stretch, look to rib knitting!
In this video I'll walk you through the two most popular rib stitches: the 1x1 rib and the 2x2 rib.
Both these rib stitches use knits and purls to make a very stretchy rib. Both are also perfect for beginners who are just getting used to knitting and purling.
Master rib knitting, and you'll have a really useful knitting technique for all your future projects.
