You don't make any increases on the purl rows, if that's what you mean. The increases from the knit rows become a stitch like the est of the knits done on that row so they would all be purled. Maybe it would help if you realize that the back of a knit stitch is a purl, the back of a purl stitch is a knit. Just work the stitches however they look on the WS rows - they'll all look like purls so you purl them.

Here's how it goes -
R 1, knit with increases
R2, purl, no increases
R3, knit with increases
R4, purl, no increases
and so on.... All the odd rows are knit with increases, all the even rows are purl with no increases.
