K-b question for "the Simplest Cap of All"

So, I wanted my first hat pattern to be http://tiajudy.com/simplestcap.htm because I get to kill two birds with one stone (learning to knit on DPNs and getting some holiday knitting out of the way early). But, the instructions are rather confusing. In particular I don’t know if this order “increasing 8 stitches evenly spaced around the circle by lifting the bar between the stitches below and knitting into the back of this stitch, twisting it.” is the same as K-b. If it is, awesome! If not, could someone decipher this for me, please! :slight_smile:

Thanks!

It would be a m1b (make1 back)
