This has a very discreet edge against k1 p1 ribbing.

In the video I comment that it’s tricky to work. For me, it’s because I tend to work it too tightly, and need to focus on keeping it loose. It also requires some clumsy movements as a Continental knitter. Sorry English knitters, I don’t have a demo in English. As one viewer commented, it certainly would be more straight forward to an English knitter, although I would still stress that you want to work it loosely.

TIP: Using a crochet hook in the right hand can make this cast on easier.
