If you want to increase on the edge, you can p,k into one stitch if you need to start the row with a purl and then k,p into the last stitch. Or k,p. . . p,k if that's what's called for.

It's not perfect, but when you work the following rows, the stitches get incorporated into the ribbing, and the increases look like they grow out of the edge. Seaming will hide any irregularities, too.
