This is also called a M1L (make one left).
When paired with matching M1Rs, it can help "shape " your garment more effectively.
ex. When knitting a sleeve in the round, place M1R and M1L on either side of the underarm "seam" to produce a steady/even increase in sleeve width.
ex. When knitting a sleeve flat, place M1R and M1L on either end of the row. They will then be brought together and paired up when you do your seaming.
