help with increase
I'm a relatively novice knitter & I'm making gloves for the first time. The pattern says to use the backwards loop method to increase for the thumb, but I found that there are 2 ways to do that. You can make one towards (M1T) or make one away (M1A). The pattern doesn't specify one way or another. Is there one method I should stick to or does it not matter which I choose.

It doesn't matter. Just be consistent.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
