I’m making baby booties from the Lion site.
The pattern is below:
[b]STITCH EXPLANATION <----from pattern
M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Work this new stitch through the back loop.[/b]
Notice the description of a M1 “above” ; and on the increase section of the site the video of a M1/M1 away shows a different way of doing this. Amy says I can use the M1 away when the pattern calls for a M1. So when I see a M1 in a pattern it doesn’t matter which way I do the stitch??? Silly question I know …but just like to make sure. Then I see the M1L, M1R, M1B, M1T, M1A…so I’m like ok umm…??? :??
Thanks in Advance!
