I found a tutorial for the m1 (make one), but I'm not understanding how the last one gets made. There is no loop to pull up for the last stitch, is there? I used Kfb for the first knit row to get to 18, and that worked. Then after the purl row, I had the loops to pull up for the next knit row but ... there still wasn't a way to add the last increase at the end without a Kfb. What am I missing? My example is the row of 36, adding a m1 every 4 stitches. At the far left side, there isn't a loop to pull up for the last increase, is there? I'm just doing a Kfb to fill in, I figured that out, but I'm just curious what I'm missing. ?kkkkmkkkkmkkkkmkkkkmkkkkmkkkkmkkkkmkkkkmkkkk

I am not exactly sure what you're asking, but if you need to M1 at the end of a row, just pick up the loop from the next row down (on the edge) and put it on your needle. When you turn your work, knit (or purl) it as if it was a stitch. Is that what you meant? If you use kfb, is that making lumps in your work?
