what kind of make 1? what ever kind you want, just be consistent.

this sort of increase(or decrease) for ribbing is my favorite..

VV|uuVVuuVV (row 1-|=marker, the bold is the new stitch, below)

VV|VuuVVuuVV.............Row1, first increases
VV|VuuVVuuVV.............Row 2 (no increase)
VV|VVuuVVuuVV...........Row 3, second increase
VV|VVuuVVuuVV...........Row 4 (no increase)
VV|uVVuuVVuuVV.........Row 5, third increase
VV|uVVuuVVuuVV.........Row 6 (no increase)
VV|uuVVuuVVuuVV.......Row 7, fourth increase
VV|uuVVuuVVuuVV........Row 8(no increase)

It seems weird at Rows 1 to 6--the 'rib pattern is broken.. but actually it looks fine when worked---

I've worked decreases in the same pattern.. on hats (and because on hats, there are more increase, there are at times, 6 Knits (V's in this diagram) in a row.. but surprizingly, it still end up looking like 2 X2 rib pattern.
