I assume the pattern has already taken the width of the sleeve into account in the second rib pattern. If that width is ok for you, then just extend the second rib.
Thank you. I appreciate your advice and GG's! The reason I thought I had to continue to add stitches every inch or so was because I made a raglan t-shirt that added a stitch on either side of the row about every inch for three inches. This added 6 extra stitches before starting the raglan sleeve shaping. After studying the raglan t-shirt pattern, I just assumed all sleeves for all patterns would have to be shaped and have stitches added in the same way. As you can tell, I'm a novice at this! Thanks again!
