Specifically, knitted ribbing.
I don't know why about 99% of the patterns I run across that call for ribbing (socks and hats mostly since I don't do large wearables) call for 2x2 ribbing. To me, 1x1 ribbing looks so much nicer and has more stretch to it.
Therefore, when I run across a pattern I like and it calls for 2x2 ribbing I will change that to 1x1 ribbing.
The fingerless gloves and matching hat I just finished look really nice with it. My grandchildren insisted on modeling them even though they're made for their father. The patterns will be up on my pattern blog later on after I proofread it for mistakes.
