Welcome @robinsg! I moved your post into it's own thread. It will get seen more here.
We need to know what you are making and if you have a link it would be great if you'd post it. There are just too many patterns to know what each one wants you to do. Different designers use different terms and write differently, too.
Do you mean you are knitting a row turning then purling a row..so you are doing stockinette? Or are you k1p1 ribbing? As for the increases.. no way of knowing without more info.
