Hotmomaknitter,I was unsure about the "2H ins (6 cm)" insyruction, as well. I think it means 2 and Half inches. Since 1 inch is = to 2.5 cm, then 2.5 inches would be approximately 6 cm.

Hotmomaknitter,

what does 2H ins?

I would also like to know what M1 stands for. I t would be helpful to show what the abbreviations stand for.

M1 is abbreviation for "make 1" means you must increase one stiche

I just finished knitting The Great American Afghan, which has a "M1" or make 1 stitch in it. In the one I did, it's just a simple increase - to "M1" using a left-slanting increase, you insert the needle front to back between the last stitch knitted and the first stitch on the left needle. Then you knit, twisting the strand by working into the loop at the back of the needle. It's easy to do, and it makes a nice increase.

what does the instruction (M1) mean in this pattern. help would be appreciated.thanks

I need to understand what the instruction (M1) means in this pattern. Your help would be appreciated.
