ribbing
I asked a question about ribbing on another thread but I don't think I understand fully. I did not get an answer back so I will ask here. Anyway, I have read to improve your ribbing you can wrap your purls clockwise because that will use less yardage. So, because you wrap your purls clockwise that will twist the stitch so if you are working on flat when you get to the twisted stitch you just knit into the back.

My question is

If you are working in the round and you wrap your purls clockwise it will twist your stitch and since you are not turning your work how does this work.

Should I just knit the knits as usual then purl clockwise on every row.
or
should I just knit the knits as usual then purl clockwise on one row, and then on the next row purl into the back of the purl and then keep alternating?
