alternately, move the increases in 2 stitches

VVuuVVuuVVuuVVuuVV (before increase)


.....VVVuuVVuuVVuuVVuuVVV
...VVVVuuVVuuVVuuVVuuVVVV
.VVuVVuuVVuuVVuuVVuuVVuVV
VVuuVVuuVVuuVVuuVVuuVVuuVV after increases (shown in red)

yes, in row 1 you have 3 knits in a row, and row 2 4 knits in a row, but by row 4, you are back to ribbing..
this "pattern" of increases creates an easy to seam selvage too.

here is a hat with a similar pattern-(ok its decrease, and a hat) but you'll see the idea...the side seams would look similar to one of the ribs of the hat.. very attractive!
