When I have to increase in a ribbing or seed stitch pattern, I do it like this:
If the stitch that will be added at the beginning is a purl, I'll purl and knit into the first stitch.
If the stitch that will be added at the end is a purl, I'll knit and purl into the last stitch.
I do the opposite if the added stitch will be a knit.
Ingrid, I watched the video on MIL and MIR and she lifts the strand between the two stitches. What do you mean the little loop in the back? Are you doing something different than the video?
