Hi friends! I have a question about what increase to use. I usually use a make one ( i prefer to do a m1 left, unless of course it is a directional pattern that specifies left or right. But I am really liking the lifted loop increase, where you knit into the base of the next stitch (or into the loop 2 stitches below on the RHN for a left leaner).
I am finding it much easier and quicker, and the increase is quite invisible. I guess if i WANT the inc to show more, i would choose the m1 inc.
So my question is, when else would i NOT want to use this increase? when is the make one increase better to use than the lifted loop increase?
I guess i am wondering why the M1 is considered a good general increase, when i presonally find it more fussy to execute, when compared to the lifted loop. But that might justy be peculiar to my knitting style.
Thanks! Happpy knitting!
