Hi,  I'm hoping someone out there can help me figure out how to increase in 2x2 ribbing.  I'm making sleeves and I've tried to play around with it and just can't figure it out.  Whatever I end up doing looks ugly.  I would appreciate any help I can get please,

here's how I would do it - umm not that I know of a standard way.

But for it to look best you probably want the ribbing pattern to continue, with new stocking stitch 'ribs' growing out of the purl sections

First work out how many increases you want and how many will be on each row over how many rows.

Then I would increase in between two purl stitches for the first set,

increase out of that stitch for the next set

so that you know have k2, p1, k2, p1, k2 as your increase section

then increase in each of those single purls once

obviously that relies on having a total of 4 increases in each 'bit' - but you can play around with that, the only general rule I would go by is to always have 2 knit stitches seperated by 1-2 purls. It won't be nearly so noticeable if the purl bit of the rib is off than if the knit bit is.

Does that even sort of help?
