Description

make 1 left leaning increase stitch

Overview

M1l simply means to “make 1 left”. 

 Pick up the bar between the last stitch you knit and the one you're about to knit, bringing the needle from the front to the back. Now knit through the back of this loop. This creates a twist in this increase stitch so you won’t see a hole in your work like you would with a yarn over for example.
