2×2 ribbing help?!

Now I’m working on a slouch beanie and I know how to do most of the things I need. I know how to knit and purl. But I can’t seem to remember if when ending the row and starting a row if I should knit my knits and purl my purls or purls my knits and knit my purls… Please help me.

You would want to k2p2 at the beginning of every row ( assuming a multiple of 4) so I guess you wpuld knit the purls and purl the knits. A knit stitch has a bump that rises higher on the back side of the work than a purl stitch. This nifty tutorial with pics might help…

What does the pattern tell you to do?? That’s what I would look at first, to see what it tells u to do!!


For double ribbing you should knit the knits and purl the purls.
For any type of seed stitch you knit the purls and purl the knits

Thank you. I eventually figured it out.
