How to knit a rib (K1, P1)

In this DROPS video we show how you can knit a rib in knit 1, purl 1 (K1, P1)

Knitting a rib gives an elastic piece that is great for cuffs and edges. It’s important that all knitted stitches comes above knitted stitches, and all purled stitches come above the purled stitches.

1st row (RS): K1, P1, continue like this until end of row, turn.
2nd row (WS): P1 above P1, K1 above K1. Continue like this until end of row, turn.
