M1 – Make One – Backwards Loop Cast On Increase:
- Wrap your yarn around your left thumb or index finger clockwise.
- With your right needle, pick up the loop created along the side of your thumb or finger.
- Slip it off your thumb or finger and pull the yarn to tighten the stitch creating what looks like a twisted yarn over.
- NOTE: YouTube video for visual reference of the Backwards Loop Cast On (for the increases you’ll only be doing one loop at a time): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojOU7Bco4dM
