Make One Right (m1R) | Right Leaning Stitch Increase

Demystifying the Make One Right (m1R) Stitch

The 'make 1 right' (M1R) increase is a knitting technique used to create a new stitch that leans to the right, perfect for shaping and maintaining pattern continuity. This increase method involves lifting the strand between two stitches and knitting into it to form a new stitch.

To execute the make one right (m1R) stitch:

  1. Use the left needle to pick up the strand between the last stitch you knit and the one you’re about to knit, bringing the needle from back to front. Leave the strand on the left needle.

  2. Insert the tip of the right needle knitwise into the front leg of the lifted strand.

  3. Knit the lifted strand as usual.

  4. Slide the new stitch from the right needle to the left needle, completing the "make 1 right" increase.
