First, it's good to remember that ribbing tends to look weird until you get several rows done, even if you're doing it right.
Second, since you're knitting in the round, remember to knit the knits and purl the purls.
Third, do you have a multiple of 4 stitches? If not, that will throw your ribbing off.
Hope some of that helps!
