Can anyone tell me was the abbreviation M1 stand for? It is on the hood for the Ki's Hippie Hoodie

It means "make one". This is an increase. There are a few different ways you can do this. You can do a left one or a right one. They do not specify so just pick which one you feel like I guess. There are videos on youtube that can show you how to do this.
