Ribbing on circular sweater

[COLOR=“DarkOrchid”]:waving: I’ve got about 2 more inches to do in st st and then I’m planning on ribbing about another 3"… but I want my ribbing to be 3k, 2p… or vice versa…:teehee:
Is this possible?
And does the thing about an even amount of stitches apply when making this kind of ribbing?
Right now I have 165 stitches on my needles.
Thanks,

You don’t always need an even number of stitches…it depends on the rib you want to do. To do k3, p2 you need a multiple of 5 ([B]3[/B] knits + [B]2[/B] purls=5 stitches).

If my math is correct you’ll be fine with 165…this makes 33 repeats…

[COLOR=“DarkOrchid”]Thanks for the advice, Jan.:thumbsup:
I’ve gone ahead and done my k3, p2 and it’s coming out wonderfully… much to my surprise…:happydance:
Amazing how its all worked out.
