I need help decoding some of these instructions for this pattern, please. It’s from the Creative Knitting magazine January 2010 issue. It’s called Drop the Gauntlet.
It says to drop the next st from the needle and allow it to unravel for 5 rows. Does that mean I pick it up after it unravels for 5 rows and put it back on my needle? If so, which needle do I put it on?
It says to M1. I know that means to make one and I’m not as familiar to M1 as I am to knitting in the front and back. Could I just do that instead or would that make an extra number of sts?
Also, which M1 do I use? In my help book thingy I have, it gives me several. Like M1L, M1R, M1A, etc. The pattern just says M1…
If anyone could give me a hand that would be quite wonderful. Thank you very much.
