Good Mornin all you yarnies!!!
K, when it comes to ribbing there is one simple little thing to remember... AS the work is FACING you (ready to knit, with stitches to be knitted on the LEFT needle), knit the knits (v's) and purl the purls (bumps or upside down u's). Don't get all wigged out from what you did on the previous row, because once you've turned it, those stitches are now on their backsides, and you always do what is presented on the needle.
So, no worries!!!
Just knit the knits and purl the purls, back and forth or in the round, it doesn't matter
. This works on any combination, whether it's 1x1 or 1x3 or 4x4 or 72x56
Never worry about what you've already knitted unless told to do so in the pattern.
Hope that helps ya hun
