Pattern Problems
Hi, I'm relatively new to knitting and I'm having a problem with the pattern I'm currently working on. The pattern says to M1 on the first row. How do I do this? M1 is between existing stitches and I don't understand how to do it on my first row. Please help. Thanks

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
You could substitute a M1A

for the M1. That'd be easier to work on the first row.
What pattern are you making? Can you give us a name or a link to it?

Will the M1a make a hole in the pattern? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/distinction.

Not any more than the M1. Give it a try on a swatch to see if you like it. There are several more increases on the Free Videos tab at the top of the page, under Increases that you might try.

Lovely shawl!
