Does "make one" in knitting mean "increase one"? I tried looking it up and can`t find the term "Make one"
Please reply - Thank you

knitting.about.com has all sorts of useful info -- there`s a page on how to do increases, including M1:

Hi Bella - hope this helps

Make 1 Increase ( m1 )
With left need tip, lift the strand between last stitch and the first stitch on left needle, from front to back. Knit the lifted loop through back to close up the stitch. Makes a left slant increase without using adjacent stitches

Happy Knitting

Dear Bea,

Thank you so much. I knew it had something to do with the bar between stitches, but I couldn`t find it anywhere when I needed it. Now I remember it clearly. Thanks again!

Usually, it seems to mean "make one extra stitch by whatever method you prefer," and in lace patterns, that usually means a yarn-over... but there are so many different ways to make one, that you just have to see what you like best for the pattern you are working.

I downloaded a pattern in 2006 call "Chat Print Yarn Over Shell" made with chat yarn. I am at the neck edge and I have a come to a term "md" the pattern line reads: Join: work 6 mds, circular Gtr st (knit 1 md, purl 1 md): BO all sts knitwise. Anyone know what "MD" stands for??????

Are you sure it`s not goofy print font that should read-
Work 6 rnds. circular Gtr stitch?

Rounds??

Hello Debi,

I`ve taken a look at the pattern and Bets is correct, the "md" is actually "rnd" for round.

For garter stitch in the round, you need to knit one round, purl one round, knit one round, purl one round, etc. If you do not alternate with purl rows you will end up with stocking stitch not garter stitch. It doesn`t seem logical, but it`s the way it works. If you don`t like the slight jog, knit all rows back and forth (not in the round) and sew up the little seam.

Here you go
Slip next 2 sts to right needle as if to knit them together; k next st, pass both slipped stitches, together, over stitch just knit. Forms a centered double decrease.
