I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Make 1 Left and Make 1 Right

The picture below shows you the end result of making two stitches by using the horizontal bar between stitches and knitting one and purling one. This will give you two stitches in a ribbing of 1 x 1 without changing your pattern.
 Make 2 at a time K1 P1
The second picture is showing you a M1L or Make one left and a M1R or Make 1 Right.  You will be using the vertical bars of the stitches.
M1L and M1R
The third picture is showing you the possible outcomes of this combination.  On each side of a stitch and between two stitches.
