Make one? How?
Hello, I need help !! How do you "make one" on a cast on edge? My pattern ( for baby booties) says to cast on 28 stitches and then the very next line of instructions says," K2,M1,k10,[m1,k1] 4 times, k10,M1, k2. How do you make one when there is no transverse yarn to make one with? I tried to do it with the cast on stitch but is just doesn't work. Am I missing something? PLEASE HELP!! Thanks!!

Because I stink at explaining things here is the link to the video.

Ok I can't get the URL of the video itself, go here
http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/abb...ons_explained/
and do a search for "M1" and do the M1F

Thanks Darcy, but this doesn't address my problem. The M1F on the video is how I normally would make one but when I try it on a cast on edge, there is no yarn in between to make one with. Anyone else have a suggestion? Thanks.

I've been known to substitute kfb for m1 when I need to make a stitch. It doesn't seem to have destroyed my knitting too much.

You can use kfb/bar increase, do a backwards loop or a yo which you knit through the back loop on the next row.

Oh I'm so sorry I didn't read properly.

I hope someone answers soon. I just knit through the back loop and the
front loop to make an extra stitch but that may not be the proper way to do it.

I use EZ's way: Make a firm backward loop on the right needle. It's a lot easier if you knit Continental.

I've seen this question before with regard to a bootie--maybe it's the same one?

You could do an intitial row before the M1, or just do a regular increase on that row.

Ingrid, thanks for your comments.......the baby bootie pattern is from the new book, Never to Old to Knit. I thank you for your help and thanks also to Contiknitter. It is so nice to have somewhere to go when you have an issue or question. This board has been a big blessing on more than one occasion. Until next time..........
