M1 increase problem

Hello! I am making something which requires me to do M1L and M1R increases. I have followed instructions as given in all my books and the videos on this site, but I am still getting little holes where the increases have been made! (It’s a teddy bear that I am making, so the stuffing is going to stick out of the little holes, which is no good) How do I avoid this?? What am I doing wrong? Help!!:??

Make sure you knit the st you lift from the yarn between the sts with a twist and that should close up the holes. Or you could try the KRL/KLL increase, that leaves no hole and is virtually invisible.
