This will make very miniture cables which are like the knit st of the ribbing, and purl stitches between them for the purl st of the ribbing.
That's it. You are right it is a form of ribbing. I tried working the pattern using your directions and it works. The thing I was doing wrong was not going into the second stiitch on the left hand needle. You made my day. Thanks, Biscotti.
