mdolphin 6912697=there is more than 1 person on here with this name, not sure why you feel compelled to randomly attack a stranger on a random site on the internet, but then I realized your comment said a lot more about you than anyone else on this site.

Bernat needs to make their patterns a little more clearer! Thank you for explaining what M1 meant. Why do we need two balls of yarn? I haven't started making the slippers yet but the pattern doesn't seem to fit the "easy" definition. My neighbor made these slippers for my sisters and I many years ago and i have been looking for the pattern for a long time. Going to try to make them for my sisters this Christmas to bring back wonderful memories. Thank you!

If you Google: Knit or Crochet Glossary, it will give you all the new symbols. M1, is picking up the thread from below the two stitches, then knit to the back. This will give you an extra stitch. Hope this has helped.

@meowyldy 9637003, According to Bernat (the original designer of this pattern), the definition of M1 is: Make 1 stitch by picking up horizontal loop lying before next stitch and knitting into back of loop. Hope this helps! --Editor of AllFreeKnitting

I cannot imagine that M1 means anything like "make one stitch as if to knit". I wonder if it means to "slip one stitch" as if to knit. I cannot find a term like this anywhere and I have done lots of knitting. Can the person who created this pattern please advise?

M1 means make 1 sticch as if to knit.

no it doesn't. It means to make 1 stitch by picking up the strand laying between the next two stitches.

Elizabethane, I wonder why you feel compelled to go through this website and answer every comment no matter how far back they go? I see your answers (often incorrect) everywhere, even replying now to comments made in 2011. Do you have a smarty pants complex? Or just too much time on your hands?

This is not an EASY pattern. and what does M1 mean?

I have no idea what M1 means. Can't find it in my glossary. This seems awfully complicated for a beginner. Got other slipper patterns that might be easier and uses more commonly known directions. M1? does it mean Mark 1? How do you do this? I've been knitting afghans, scarves, dishtowels, etc. but nothing this complicated. Would love to learn and give some for Christmas. Please let me know in laymen terms (instructions on how to M1) Thank you. Sue
