'Make 1' Tutorial

'Make 1' is a common method of increasing stitches in knitting. It is usually abbreviated to 'm1' in knitting patterns.
Step 1: Identify the loop that lies between the needles.

In this case the loop is the white horizontal line that is circled.
Step 2: Pick up the loop.

Insert the left hand needle from front to back underneath the loop and pick the loop up onto the left hand needle.
Step 3: Knit the loop.

Knit into the back of the loop. Knitting into the back of the loop rather than the front twists the new stitch as it is knitted.
Step 4: The final result.

Twisting the new stitch means that there is not a hole in the work.
