Make 1 Purlwise (m1p) is a very useful technique when you’re increasing on the purl side of the fabric. By simply purling into the front loop versus the back loop, m1p leans right or left on the knit side of the fabric, imitating the look of the usual knitwise m1R (make 1 right) and m1L (make 1 left).
