If you continue in the same pattern you will get a "mistake-stitch" look, a rather bulky pretty pattern that doesn't really pull in like a true ribbing, but which has a puffy texture.

If you work knit stitches over knit stitches and purls over purls (as they present themselves) you will get a ribbing that will pull in closely.

It looks like this pattern is going for the offset "mistake" stitch pattern. I'd continue in the established pattern.
