Hi--I was trying out something called the star-stitch pattern. For those of you out there that have the perpetual knitting stitch calendar (365 knitting stitches a year), it is the pattern featured for date Nov6. Pattern as follows:
Mult of 4 + 1
Row 1: (right side) P1,*K1P1; rep from * to end.
Row 2: K1, *MS, K1; rep from * to end.
Row 3: Rep Row 1.
Row 4: K1P1, K1, *MS, K1; rep from * to last 2 sts, P1, K1.
Rep. these 4 rows.

I saw that member Kaju helped Bonster with M1. Is this at all related? Pattern looks pretty from the photo. Surprised no glossary. Many thanks if anyone know what is MS (see Row 2, above)--Fran.

Hi I just did a google search for MS knit stitch pattern and this video came up:

I would guess MS means Make Star?

Hi I am new to this site. My name is Susan.While downloading a free ebook for my son to learn to knit, from another site. It has a list of knitting abbreviations. Under MS it said Markers, M was marker.
Hope this helps. I've been knitting a long time and still have to look things up.

Dear Loistec--That MS means make star makes sense. Thanks for reference to the video. I just found some additional "special instructions" apart from basic abbreviations. They say to Make star, see Make knot, which they describe, as follows: Purl 3 sts together, leaving the sts on the left-handed needle. Wrap the yarn around the needle; then purl same 3 sts together again.
Will practice. But after all, don't know whether this will be the best stitch for me, though, since I tend to knit tight. Many thanks, again, for prompt reply. Fran :-)

Usually it means "make 1 stitch".

on the back side of the December 31 pattern stitch, is the listing of all the abbreviations! MS means 'make star'.

MS means to make a stitch or increase by one stitch.
