ribbing
When I ribb and the pattern doesn't say what to do in the second row. If I begin with a K1 and end with a P1 on the second row what do I start with?

For ribbing, if you end with a purl, start with a knit. If you end with a knit, start with a purl. After a while you'll be able to tell what do do by looking at the stitches. If there's a V, knit it. If there's a bump, purl it.

Learning what your stitches look like is a very important lesson in knitting. It will help you all the time.

Stitches each have two sides, one is a knit and the other is a purl. Here's what the stitches look like.
