Hi I came to a direction in a sweater pattern I am knitting that goes like this
*P2, K1, p2, m7; repeat from * around.
My question is, What does m7 mean? In the book m stands for meter's.
In common knitting abbreviations 'm' has several meanings depending on the context.
Sometimes it means 'make' so if you see m1 or m2 in a pattern it might be the abbreviation the designer uses for make one or make two. Which means to increase the number of stitches.
In other patterns where more than one colour are used 'm' can stand for main colour, so if your design is a fair isle pattern, your instructions might mean knit the next 7 stitches using the main colour.
But it is hard to tell without seeing your pattern.
