Why does my ribbing always roll?

I have finished the lower edge of the body of a sweater with 1x1 ribbing, and once again the ribbed section is rolling up. This has happened on pretty much every sweater I’ve ever made. It has even happened on sweaters with a garter edge instead of ribbing. Clearly I am doing something wrong but I don’t know what. I’d love any tips for avoiding this issue.

Patty Lyons did a post on just this problem. Here’s the link.


Thanks so much! I had somehow missed that article. I’m close to reaching the ribbing on a top down sweater, so I’ll try one of these techniques.
