Hi Nannieree! Yes, the m1 is in the knitted version. I have finished two and working on a third one now. Yes, got the patterns off the official site which is very well done! So you mail yours directly to them? We are donating ours to a local cancer facility. I also have a friend who has two friends going through surgery soon and I'll be making some for those ladies as well. Yes, I love knitting them.....feel like it really makes a difference! Thanks for chatting!!
