What is the difference between M1L and M1R?
Both the M1R and M1L are techniques that will increase your knitting by one stitch. The only difference is the direction of the increase. The M1R slants to the right, while the M1L slants to the left.
How do I memorize M1R?
The trick is to remember which is which.
Asa from AsaTricosa offers an interesting prompt – the words Right and Rear start with the same letter, so you will remember to pick up the strand between stitches from the Rear (back) when you make a Right slanting increase (M1R).

To “make 1 right” (m1R), use the left needle to pick up the strand between the last stitch you knit and the one you’re about to knit, bringing the needle from back to front. Leave the strand on the left needle.
