q on ribbing stitch
its supposed to be k2 p2 all the way right? because when i do this, and my knits are on top of each other and my perls are on top of each other, it comes out looking decidedly NOT like ribbing. it looks pathetic in fact. is it supposed to be k2, p2??

When you knit a knit and purl a purl, it's as they face you.

Until you can see them easily, just remember that if you end with a purl, start with a knit and vice versa for ribbing.
