Jive~

When you switch to the purl part of the ribbing, are you bringing the yarn to the front? I'm not an expert either, but I've seen this problem come up a few times with purling around here before. Wish I could help more.

Yeah, listen to Yellowness! You've created a beautiful seed stitch, instead of ribbing. It's just a matter of when you do your knits and purls.

Thanks guys! When I tried again last night, it worked. I could have sworn that I was casting on in multiples of 4, but maybe not. Jivewhistle, I hope that solves your problem too! :D

Yellownes, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

I can't believe I didn't think of that! For some reason, when I started with the ribbing, I thought....as long as I cast on an even number, it will be right..LOL!!! And then it didn't even occur to me after all the trouble I was having!

Thanks everyone for the help, you guys are the best :D
