Here's a little video I made demonstrating my favorite cast on for a ribbed edge. I'd been using the German Twisted cast on for garter edges for a while when it occurred to me that since I was creating purl-like cast on stitches with the German Twisted, that it might make sense to alternate it with regular Long Tail cast on stitches for ribbing. It's simple to do and I really like the results - I've been using this method for ribbed edges ever since! I hope the video is helpful - let me know if you have any questions.
