I recently got a 2007 calendar called Knitting in a box and every day has a different pattern. I was going through it and found the cutest pair of slippers called Aunt Dana’s Russian Boots which I want to try. But, of course, as I always do, I ran into something I do not know how to do. Here is what she says:
Note about M1: Because these increases are made every round, the best increase is what Montse Stanley calls a “pinhole” increase, i.e. knit into the horizontal strand between the 2nd and 3rd stitch from the marker. Do not twist this strand. If you twist this strand the resulting stitches are too tight.
Now I found instructions for making one in the horizontal strand but one says it twists to the right and one says it twists to the left. I assume she doesn’t want this kind that twists so does anyone know what she does want. I can’t find anything on the Internet to state what this type of “pinhole” increase is. So I need to know how to knit into this horizontal strand without twisting it.
Any help would be appreciated.
