How to rib stitch

I did a series of how-to knit videos with The Australian Women’s Weekly Books and here is my video tutorial for how to do the rib stich.

Ribbing is simply switching between alternating knit and purl stitches on the same row. Ribbing is often used to make things like collars, cuffs or the rim of a knitted beanie — ribbing makes your knitting a bit tighter and more elastic.

Happy knitting!
