Making sure of M1R and M1L on front and back.

Good day everyone. Starting a sweater top down. Standard M1R and M1L. Increases are called for in every row. Directions call for M1R and M1L with no indication to purl these wrong side stitches. Just M1R and M1L. Would love some help.

The wrong side of these M1R and M1L increases depends on your pattern. If it’s stockinette and the increases are on the knit side then the wrong side of the increase would be purled.

Are you asking about increases in purl (M1p)?

I know the instructions for M1P. Just wasn’t sure about when to use. Stockinette st is perfect hint. Thanks so much.
