What does M1R mean in knitting pattern?

What is M1L and M1R in knitting?
In knitting patterns, M1R means “make one right” and M1L means “make one left”. They are both knitted in a very similar way. You pick up the yarn from a strand in between two stitches, and then the biggest difference is the way you knit that extra loop.

What does make 1 left mean in knitting?

What does Mil mean in knitting?
