First, make sure the choke flap is correctly adjusted. When the in car level is down the flap should be fully open.

There are 2 screws to play with. The idle mixture screw and the idle speed screw, it sounds like the idle speed screw wants to be wound in a touch.

If the idle increases but the revs still bob up and down quite a lot then you might need to have the mixture checked.
