It's about about ribbing on this episode of Knitting Daily TV.

On this segment, host Eunny Jang demonstrates three types of knitting ribbing: the fisherman's rib, a cabled rib, and a knitting stitch pattern that incorporates ribbing. Seen here is the Diamond Rib Dress by Laura Zukaite, from knit.wear Spring 2013.
Eunny is wearing Chloe's Vest by Josie Mercier, from Interweave Knits Spring 2013.

Yarn expert Clara Parkes joins Eunny in the knitting lab to talk about knitting and crochet yarns that are great for stitch definition, something important to consider if you are knitting rib or patterns that you want to stand out in your garments. Seen on this episode is Tahki Stacy Charles' Zara yarn and Anzula's Dreamy yarn.
Eunny wraps up this episode with a quick tip for measuring gauge in knitted rib.
