It may be hard to detect, but for this project I learned a way of casting on that accomplishes a first row of knit-purl ribbing (very fancy!). I followed the directions in the video here (scroll down to “Method 5: Rib Cable Cast-On”). I always get lost in a first row of ribbing, ending up with some deviations from the knit-one-purl-one pattern, so using this method was worth the effort!
