>Using an open edge cast on, cast on an odd number of stitches and with a keyplate one size smaller than you would normally use with your selected yarn, knit the required number of rib rows.
Starting with the second stitch, ladder down to the beginning of the knitting and latch up for rib but using 2 rungs of the ladder at a time.
Repeat on all alternate stitches.
It is not necessary to do a closed edge cast on as the rib stitches lock the edge. Just pull up the thread forming the first row to close up the edge.
The sample was knitted on the Bond using DK yarn and the old keyplate 1.
