[socialpug_share ]

About This Technique

The Make One Towards Increase can be used whenever you pattern calls for a make one (M1) increase. Increases add stitches to your work and are used to shape your fabric. The Make One Towards increase is a neat and clean increase that is easy to create, but it does result in a small hole. This may be desirable as a decorative element.
