Make 1 is an increase that is worked into the horizontal strand of yarn running between two stitches. There are two types of Make 1’s, a left twist M1L and a right twist M1R. Some patterns do not specify which type of Make 1 to use, whenever the pattern doesn’t specify, it is safe to use the M1L.
M1L=Make 1 left. Twist the horizontal strand of yarn CLOCKWISE.
M1R=Make 1 right. Twist the horizontal strand of yarn COUNTERCLOCKWISE.

Thanks so much for doing the mini-series on increase. I know this will help a lot of the knitters, including myself. I know them all in needle knitting just wasn’t sure on the loom. Thanks again for all your wonderful help!!! Any new races coming up?
Using 50 pegs. How do I get 2/3rds out of the 25 for the heel/toe?
How do I M5 on same stitch? The stitch guide says M5 (make): (k1,YO, K1, YO, K1) in same st: 5 sts in one made.
The pattern calls for the following.
row 1: K1; *P5tog, M5 in next st; rep from * to last st, K1.
This is really confusing. Please help me understand how to do this.
