Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I think I understand it now. That is what the diagram is, correct?

I don't understand m1. Is it similar to the bi doff stitch?

M1-is "make 1 stitch", you do this by picking up the horizontal strand lying between the next two stitches and knitting through the back of it. Hope this helps, happy knitting.
