Is it nerdy to get excited about an increase?? Then I'm a huge nerd, because this is my favorite increase to use for making invisible, undetectable (even by radar!), and completely professional-looking increases. M1 (makeone) is easy to execute, but you've got to remember (or lookup whenever you need to ;)) the two ways to do it - one that leans left, and one that leans right.
Why does the direction the stitch leans matter? It's important for two reasons.
For working mirrored increases - say, at each end of a row - it'll look neater if your increases are leaning away from each other.
If worked improperly, i.e., if a left-leaning m1 is worked like a right-leaning m1 (or the other way 'round), you might create a hole.
To follow along with this tutorial, you'll need a few rows of knitting to practice with.
