Stitch of the Month: Twisted Cable Rib

Video Tutorial: Twisted Cable Rib is a pretty variation of basic k2, p2 or 2 x 2 ribbing.
Basic knit two, purl two ribbing is one of the most basic cuff or edging patterns, but it can be kind of plain. Sometimes I like to pretty things up by adding a simple twist to this common motif. It's called a twisted cable rib. Don't worry, though. You don't need any special cable needle to create the twist.
