Make 1 is an increase that is worked into the horizontal strand of yarn running between two stitches. There are two types of Make 1′s, a left twist M1L and a right twist M1R. Some patterns do not specify which type of Make 1 to use, whenever the pattern doesn’t specify, it is safe to use the M1L.
M1L=Make 1 left. Twist the horizontal strand of yarn CLOCKWISE.
M1R=Make 1 right. Twist the horizontal strand of yarn COUNTERCLOCKWISE.
