Your question: How do you pick up stitches on ribbed edge?

How do you pick up ribbed stitches?

For horizontal edges: Insert the knitting needle through the center of a stitch below the bind-off chain, wrap or pick the working yarn, and pull it through the stitch to the front. Picking up through the center of a stitch on horizontal edges creates continuity from the sweater body into the neckband ribbing.

Why does my ribbing look weird?

Ribbing, whether it be 1×1, 2×2 or whatever combination can look sloppy – the main reason for this is that the column of Knit stitches preceding a column of Purl stitches can often look wobbly and uneven.
