The Make One Right Increase (M1R) technique is used to add stitches to your knitting and can be used any time a pattern calls for a Make One (M1) Increase. It is an almost invisible increase that is clean and tight. This particular increase creates a left leaning stitch.This technique can also be known as the Strand or Stranded Increase.
- Step 1: Take your main needle and going from behind, insert it under the strand between your two stitches, and lift up.
- Step 2: With your working needle, insert your tip into the newly formed stitch, knitwise, and knit it off the needle.
- Step 3: Knit the next stitch off your main needle.
