Question from mva5493, “I have a question about increases. I have recently started making toe up socks and have noticed several patterns call for m1 left and m1 r increases to shape the toe.. I find that I prefer kfb as an increase method.

So my question: Are increase methods interchangeable?”

About Leslie

Leslie is obsessed with knitting, and when possible, perfection in her knitting. All stripey socks must match exactly and all lace must be blocked severely. She has major love for all of her viewers/readers and hopes to keep blogging and podcasting for years to come.
