Sometimes a pattern calls for a Make One increase on the purl side of the fabric. Watch this video to learn how to execute a left leaning and right leaning M1P. A third M1P is demonstrated and is used in decorative stitch patterns.
A make one increase (M1) is a nearly invisible increase creating a knit stitch. Many of today’s designers prefer the make one over the popular kfb (knit into front and back of stitch) which creates a knit stitch followed by a purl stitch. Discriminating knitters can use the Make One Left and Make One Right for beautiful leaning increases in gussets and yokes. Confused? Watch my newest video and try this easy to execute increase.
A make one is featured in my Super Simple Heel.
