I can do a M1R/M1B, and I can do a M1F/M1L. Now I have a pattern that requires a M1K and M1P.
I understand that I pick up the bar from front to back on both those increase stitches (correct?). But I am stuck as to how to knit through the back loop and purl through the back loop (especially purl).
If it’s too complicated for someone to explain and if there isn’t a video (that would be the best!), can I just substitute another left- and right-leaning increase? Is the M1K right- or left-leaning?
I have only a few rows done on this garment (the pattern was created at a yarn shop in another state), so I can’t see the pattern well enough yet to wing it. I have frogged my first few rows three times as I’ve tried to figure this out. Aargh.
Hope this post isn’t too confusing. Thanks for any help you can provide.
