What is MS?

Is MS the same as M1? The pattern I’m using says MS. It’s for a circle bobble pattern from The Knitters’ Bible. Thanks~Brooke

Hi Brooke,

Is it Bobble Circle Pattern on page 104? It looks as though they’re
defining it as follows:

MS - (k1, p1, k1) all into the next stitch

I think that’s going to create the “bobble” part of the pattern.

Yes ,but how do i k1,p1,k1 into the next st. I guess that’s the question. ~Brooke

To do the k1, p1, k1 part, you would knit into the next stitch as you would normally, but leave that original stitch on the left needle. Bring your yarn between the needles to the front and purl into the same orginal stitch, still leaving that original stitch on the left needle. Bring your yarn back to the back, and knit into the orginal stitch on left needle and then drop the original stitch off the needle.

Essentially, you are doing two increases in the same stitch and have 3 stitches where you originally had one.

Hope that helps and makes sense. It’s getting late here and what I wrote may make sense to me, but may not to anyone else. :??

Let me know if it doesn’t…

PS~ Sorry for the overuse of “original.” :lol:

Ok I think I get it. I’ll give it a try in the morning. Thanks~Brooke

I made bobbles on the first row of Aibhlinn. It sounds weird to read those instructions, but once you actually DO it, it wont.

BTW, my pattern called it “MB”. I wonder what the S stands for?
