|Make One Stitch
Sometimes in a pattern you may come across the abbreviation M1.
This stands for "make one" or "make one stitch". When the abbreviation is listed simply as M1 it usually refers to a "make one stitch, left leaning" or M1L. Below you will find a thorough definition of M1L and a diagram. Occasionally the pattern will specify M1R or "make one stitch, right leaning". I have seen this most often in raglan sweater patterns that require the knitter to create both types of M1's in order to achieve the raglan shaping. Below you will see a Knitting Daily's description of a M1R.
The Kitchener Stitch
The following link is a video tutorial: http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/play/kitchener-stitch.
The great thing about using the Kitchener stitch is that you won't leave a seam.
Watch for more nifty tools and tips in the near future.
