The specific instructions for M1 state: "Pick up horizontal strand of yarn lying between st just worked and next st with the left hand needle from front, then work into back of it."
So I have to lift yarn from front to back, not back to front, and the "work into the back of it" is what I'm questioning. Do I purl or knit into the back of it and how is a purl even possible?
