K1M, what does it mean?


#1

Every now and then I see a pattern with K1M on that, and I am a bit confused about what that means. Does it mean a M1 or something?


#2

M1K is an abbreviation for: make 1 knitwise but I have not come across K1M before.
It might be a typo!!?!!
Sorry not to be very helpful, it will be interesting to see if anyone else knows it.


#3

I agree likely make 1 knit but can you give us a pattern name or link? Does the pattern Have a glossary?


#4

It’s called the Viannette Shawl. It’s not free, but you can find it on Ravelry.


#5

No list of abbreviations? If not, go with knotknittingknots’ suggestion of M1K.


#6

If you are doing colourwork it probably means knit 1 using the Main colour and K1C will use the Contrast colour.
That’s my two penn’orth anyway.

Just made contact. Turns out it’s a typo and was meant to say K1 instead. :smile:
