Hello, I am a 40 something trying knitting again after having given up in frustration over 20 years ago, and I love this site!
I'm having fun experimenting with the different increases, but am not sure when to use the M1L vs. M1R. I'm assuming the purpose is to create symmetrical increases across the right side of the work?
I'll be making a fairly simple sweater with increases required at the beginning and ends of rows, except for the hem and cuff rows, which require evenly spaced increases when going from a 1x1 rib to st st. I am comfortable with both the knit and purl versions of the increase, but I'm not sure when to go in through the front (for M1L) and when to go in through the back (for M1R). Any advice?
