INGRID, help! Combined knitting for ribbing...
So I tried the combined knitting to improve my ribbing, but it turned out worse? I am doing a 1x1 rib, so that means that on row 1, I wrap the purl the wrong way. On row two, I knit into the back of the twisted knit stitches and I wrap the purls the wrong way? So I am wrapping the purls the wrong way on all the rows, yes? Because my ribbing doesn't look any tighter? In fact, it looks worse. So I think I am doing something wrong.

BTW I am knitting on straights, I am not working in the round. When I read about this technique it talked about doing it with 2x2 ribbing, so maybe it doesn't work with 1x1?

Help!
