If you do k2 p2 ribbing on 60 sts and turn it to do the next row, then you do that in k2 p2 also. If you're working in the round, then the 2nd round will also be k2 p2. After you do a couple of rows it may be easier to see the knits and purls. And yes, that lines up the knit sts over the knit sts and makes ribbing.
