Special Abbreviati­ons Special Technique INTERMEDIA­TE Make 1 Left (M1L): Inc by inserting LH needle in top of st 2 rows below st just knit, k1-tbl. The mitts and soap saver are worked in the rnd with either 2 circular needles, or 1 long circular needle using the Magic Loop Method (see page 112). Whether using 1 needle or 2, the sts are divided in half. With 2 circular needles, slide half of the sts to the cable portion of the needle and hold on the back circular needle, the sts on the other needle are slid to the needle portion of the circular needle and worked using the other end of the same circular needle. When finished working the sts on 1 needle, slide the sts to the center cable portion and slide the sts on the other needle from the cable to the needle portion and work those sts. Continue in this manner for the rest of the rnds. For the Magic Loop Method work the same way as above, only the sts are put on 1 long needle and separated so that both needle ends are facing the same direction. Knit with the other end of the same needle.
