It takes several rows for the stitch pattern to show up.

yes, that is it, my ribbing is not coming out as ribbing. I have 10 inches of knitting of chunky yarn on size 13 needles and totally flat.
Now trying a boucle' and 5 inches long, still flat.

So, you are slipping the stitch, then, you are knitting 3, then bringing the yarn to the front to purl, then to the back to knit then to the front to purl? like bringing the yarn between the needles when you do this?

yes, that is what I am doing. Bringing the yarn to front to purl and to back to knit. The 1st scarf I did, I got the pattern emerging, with a simple k2, p2 for 15 stitches, ending with a single knit. I found out I was doing the knit stitch wrong. Now I have corrected the procedure and have no pattern coming thru. Go figure!

Are you knitting in the round or on straight needles?
