I don’t know how to do the M1P. The directions on the pattern tell me after picking up the strand between the stitches from the front to then purl into the back of the strand. Not sure how to purl when the needle is in the back. Could someone help me out?

You can look at the M1 on the Increases page and there’s a video for doing it on a purl row. You pick up the strand like doing a knit M1, but just purl into it instead.

Thank you. I’m a bit of a perfectionist. I needed that confidence to move forward.

As long as you twist the st as you purl into it, you’re good.
