Since there is so much confusion surrounding the make-one (M1) increase, I thought a video tutorial would be in order. Patterns are often misleading when they say “M1,” because in actuality, there are four types of make-one increases. This video will guide you through each one; it also includes suggestions for implementing them in your knitting projects. The stitches are presented as follows:

  • Make One Right (M1R)
  • Make One Left (M1L)
  • Make One Left Purl (M1LP)
  • Make One Right Purl (M1RP)

Happy stitching!
