Yes, if you need to increase on every row, then you have to increase on the purl side, as well. You can do a M1 purlwise, or purl into the front and back of the stitch.

If a pattern has you increase on every 4th row after that, then it would work out that you happen to increase on the knit side.

You can use pfb to increase, or M1 and purl into it instead of knit into it. The increases pages has links to videos showing the purl methods of doing the increases below the descriptions.
