How to knit the m1 increase


I've been wanting to do a series of tutorials however I've only had the time to make them as I create patterns that I feel need these tutorials (based on feedback from testers).

I don't use the "make one" (m1) increase often because I try to make my patterns simple. Sometimes, given the number of stitches you need to achieve the size you need, there's no way around it.

See below for the video tutorial.


m1 (left) - Sometimes this is written as m1L. What this means is that it has a left leaning increase.

Step 1: Using your right hand needle, pick up the strand of yarn between the 2 stitches

Step 2: Place yarn on the left needle (with left needle going through from front to back)

Step 3: Now knit the new stitch through the back loop.

If you knit through the front, you'll have a hole in your work.


m1 (right) - Sometimes this is written as m1R. What this means is that it has a right leaning increase.

Step 1: Using your right hand needle, pick up the strand of yarn between the 2 stitches

Step 2: Place yarn on the left needle (with left needle going through from back to front)

Step 3: Now knit the new stitch through the front loop.

If you knit through the back like m1L, you'll have a hole in your work.
