M1 and a hole?
I am just embarking on a pattern with M1 and am discovering holes in my knitted work. I am using the method of picking up between the stitches. Is it me or my M1?

It's your technique. For a M1, pick up the bar between stitches, grab it from front to back, then knit into the back loop to twist the stitch, thereby avoiding a hole. If you do not twist the stitch, it's technically a yarn over.

Which, by the way, is good to know if you are knitting a pattern with yarn overs. If you forget a yarn over on the previous row, pick up that bar and do not twist it to add the yarn over without having to rip out or unknit.

Yes, it did seem like I was really only accomplishing a yarn over; but I thought I was following my instructions. I will try your method. I am much better at using the videos on this site, but I still was not getting it - not without a hole --! Thanks for your help.
