Quick Answer: How do you increase a stitch in knitting without leaving a hole in it?

How do you prevent a hole in the M1R?

Right-leaning Make 1 (M1R) — Knit Side

Lift the bar between the two stitches with your left needle, coming from the back to the front of the work. Knit through the front of this loop. It’s a bit fiddly, but this twists the stitch and prevents a hole forming.

How do you increase a stitch at the beginning and end of a row?

One of the easiest ways to increase is at the beginning of a row. Insert the right-hand needle into the first stitch as if you were going to knit it, but before dropping the stitch off the left-hand needle use the tip of the right-hand needle to place the new stitch onto the left-hand needle.
