I found this (below) at Lion Brand. I hope this helps. Is that the item you are knitting? It's very snuggly-looking.

Quote:
STITCH EXPLANATION:

Broken Rib
Row 1 (RS): Knit.
Row 2: * K 3, purl 2, rep from *.
Rep Rows 1 and 2.

Open Stitch
Row 1: K1, * yarn over, knit 2 together, rep from * to last st, k1.
Rep Row 1.

NOTES:

When increasing, be sure to incorporate new sts into pattern as established.

A broken rib usually has you work the right side in ribbing--whatever pattern you like, and purl or knit across the back.

I can't picture that, but maybe there's a video.

Basically you rib on one side and work without ribbing on the other.

I get it, just purl the other side like regular, instead of k1, p1?

Hm.......I wonder what that would look like, I'll have to try a swatch tonight. Does it make the ribbing less elastic though?

here's a picture of something i was working on in broken rib:



for that piece the pattern went something like:

Row1: k3, p2, k2, p1, k2, p2, k3
Row 2: knit across

it didn't really "curl" ... but it DID have strange folding action:


from the front



from the back

people suggested that i block it... but, on a recent airplane trip the needles and yarn were confiscated. =(

OK, here's a stupid newbie question Would it matter if row 2 is purled instead of knitted?

I believe you can do it either way. It's less stretchy, but stays flattened out more. It can be very pretty.
