Knitting help please. Question about longies pattern.

I am working on knitting my first longies! I finished up the waistband, but have a question about the next row. Here are the directions. I am not sure what to do. Can you help please, or maybe link to a video or picture instructions of what this is? I see that I knit 4 (or in my case 7), but then I don't get the M1. What do I do there? Thanks so much!

Quote:
1. K4(5, 6, 7, 8), M1 (Insert left needle from the front and pick up the bar between the stitches, knit into the back.), around.

Okay, finally managed to find a video. Helped a lot! I wish the pattern had a legend. I had no idea even what an M1 was. If there was a legend, I would have been able to head to knittinghelp.com and find the right video right away. But off and knitting again, so all is good!

The part in parenthesis describes what M1 is, but seeing it done on a video is very helpful anyhow!

I needed the pointer that it was an increase . The description was not clear enough for this new knitter. This is the first pattern I have read.
