1x1 Ribbed cast on

Starting off the new year with a cast on method that honestly took me forever to learn. I kept getting my count lost when I first started out with this one and forgetting if that last stitch I made was a purl or a knit. Good thing I finally learned a way to tell the difference between the two on the cast on row, because for me, this one was a little tricky. Hopefully it's not for any of you! 

The 1x1 ribbed cast on is great for hats, cuffs, and sweater hems (if you don't feel like doing a 1x1 tubular caston). It gives the appearance of the rib going all the way down to the bottom edge of the work and it's stretchier than traditional cast ons. 

Have fun and let me know if you have any questions!
