That is cute, and like I thought, it creates the puff sleeve and you don't stay with the rib pattern after this increase row.

How are you doing the M1? Look on the Increases page for various videos, there's 2 kinds of m1. A kfb is also an increase but it uses a stitch and can put the inc in the wrong place if you use it where a m1 should be which is between 2 sts and doesn't use one.

Okay, cap sleeves. Makes sense now. Salmonmac is right. That would make things easier.

Here's one you may want to try. It really is the Very Nearly Invisible Increase it claims to be. I learned this technique recently when I found a top down hat pattern that referred to it. I really had to look at the work to find the increases.

I really like this increase and use it as often as possible. I compensate for extra sts (make one in a st, inc between sts, whatever) and go with this increase because it is so close to undetectable.

That increase from Techknitter is the same as the KRL shown on the KH increases page. It works very well along with the KLL if you need to use paired incs. I don't put the leg of the st below on the needle though, I just knit right into it.
