Hi Everyone! I am making a sweater with ribbing that just doesn't look right somehow.

My pattern indicates:1st row (right side) P1, *k1, p1; rep from * to the end.

2nd row: K1, *p1, k1; rep from * to the end.

Now I can follow this okay but my problem is it's not looking like a rib on the sweater. I keep ripping it out cos it looks more like a seed stitch.

Make sense?

Thanks everyone in advance.
