One detail that can make or break a design is the way the ribbing flows (or doesn’t flow) into the main pattern. We’ll cover how to find the perfect rib for any pattern, even pesky cabled patterns where the gauge changes. This is a great way to add a little extra detail when working from sock patterns and also useful when designing your own.

Yarn: Yarn for swatching. The exact weight doesn’t matter. It should be solid coloured and not too dark so that you can see stitch definition. Needles: Whatever you would normally use for the yarn you bring, in any configuration you like, as long as you can knit in the round. Notions: Paper, different coloured markers/pens, pencil with eraser, graph paper (4 pieces) and stitch markers.
