Creative Knitting Update Increases widen the pieces of garments, and there are several types that can be used. Perhaps the least conspicuous is the Make 1 (M1). Make 1 increases are worked between two stitches by lifting the running strand (the horizontal strand connecting two stitches) onto the left needle, inserting the right needle, wrapping and then pulling the wrap through to form a new stitch in the current row. The lifted strand can be knit or purled, and can either form a closed loop or an open one, taking on the appearance of a yarn over.
