    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

Mardel, take a look at the technique section of any Interweave Knit magazine. When you do M1R and M1L right after M1R, a bar will show up across the newly created stitches. When you do M1L and then M1R, the bar will show up on the reverse side of the fabric. I may have confused the terms here between M1R and M1L. Try them out and see what you find. Good luck!
