What is the m1 in this pattern?

k5[8, 6, 4], [—m1—, k4] 12[12, 14, 16] times, k1[4, 2, 0]. 66[72, 78, 84] sts

On the key it says “make 1 stitch”… so does that mean the same as casting on a new stitch, or am I yarning over?

m1 = “From the front, lift loop between stitches with left needle, knit into back of loop.”

For some reason I can’t link to the video directly…but it’s on this page.

You are doing an increase, but a M1 increase, which happens between stitches. Check out the increase videos–for some reason I can’t seem to make a link–and there are several M1 increases shown.

Thanks! I found the videos using the link and I’ve been practicing increases. It’s a good thing there are so many helpful people here. :cheering:
