While this will look like ribbing, it will NOT stretch like ribbing. It also doesn’t stop the work from curling. In most cases, this is NOT used at the edge of the work.
Corrugated Ribbing is worked in the Stranded knitting method.
How to Work
Assumes an even number of sts and worked In-the-Round.
Round 1: *K1 (in C1), P1 (in C2); repeat from * to end.
Repeat Row 1 until the work is the needed length.
Swap the colors to get a different look.
If I had to do this again, I would do this. The darker color recedes and the lighter color comes forward. I’m showing you this way so you can see it, but I think it would work better if the knits were in the lighter color and the purls in the darker color.

And don’t get her talking about hand-dyed yarns. You’ve been warned.
