I’ve just started a new pattern for a cardigan and it reads: Back. Cast on 55 STS using 4 1/2 needles and M.
Work in g st until back measures 21cm.
What does the ‘M’ mean please?
Welcome to KnittingHelp!
Does your pattern have multiple colors? Perhaps M is Main Color?
Oh yes it does!!! Oh thanks! I feel like such a doofus!
Usually you’d see MC for Main Color. I think that might have thrown me for a loop.
I was trying to remember if M was a crochet hook size.
I’ve never seen one that I recall but it seems there is an M hook.
