Need help figuring out pattern
Pattern stitch is a cable. It says do M.1 which reads -
put 4 sts on cable needle behind work, k4,k4 from cable needle
put 4 sts on cable needle in front of work k4,k4 from cable needle
The pattern reads do M.1 (12 sts) I can't figure it out. I can give the entire pattern if needed, it's short and simple, I thought. Any help would be so very much appreciated.
It's a free pattern from Drops so may be English term
