You asked: What is the Stretchiest knit stitch?

What’s the best cast on for ribbing?

The alternating cable cast on is also quite stretchy, making it nicely suited for ribbing. In fact, I sometimes refer to it as my “ribbing cast on”! While this cast on is more advanced than a long tail cast on, it’s a great technique to use for hats, mittens, socks and sweater sleeves.

Which cast on method is best?

The long tail cast-on is one of the most common cast-on methods. This is because it’s extremely versatile. While it helps create an even edge (something that can sometimes be difficult to create with the single cast-on method), it’s also a great cast-on to use on projects in which you may want a fairly elastic edging.

How many different stitches are there in knitting?

What are the basic stitches in knitting? All of knitting is based on two simple stitches, the knit stitch and the purl stitch. Everything else is a combination or variation of those two stitches. The knit stitch is made by creating a loop in the back of your work.
