ribbing in the round

After picking up 100 stitches for the neckline of a sweater I now have to do k4 p4 ribbing. The pattern does not make sense.

It states: Row 1 rib: (K4,P4) to last 4 sts. K4
Row 2 rib: (P4,K4) to last 4 sts. P4
These 2 rows form the rib.

If I start with K4 and end with K4 I have 8 knitted stitches in a row. Also I thought when doing rib you read the stitches and knit the knit sts. and purl the purl. That's not what the pattern is telling me to do.
