I'm knitting a dog sweater and the ribbing is k1, p1. I have 47 stitches. My first row ended in a purl. When I start the next row do I knit that stitch or purl it??

You knit it. You work the stitches as they present themselves: knit the knit stitches (look like a "V"), and, purl the purl stitches (look like a bar "-").

If it an odd number of stitches, you would purl the first st and you will end with a k, The next row you would start with a k and end with a purl again. Hope this elps.

If you are working over 47 stitches and started with k1 then your row should have ended with k1. I would suggest counting your stitches to make sure you still have 47 or whether you might have put either 2 knit or 2 purl stitches next to each other.

Thank you everyone!! I've done ribbing on socks and didn't have a problem. For some reason I forgot what to do.

I'll check that, it's very likely that I messed up! lol

Thank you!! I knew you knitted the knit and purled the purl, but didn't know if it was the way it's presented to you or not. You all are so helpful!!

I thought I had 47 stitches but only had 46!!
Thanks again everyone. It looks like ribbing now. (Had to rip out the previous work.)

Purl the purls and knit the knits, and you'll having ribbing.
