Learn to knit the M1R (make 1 right, or right leaning make one) and the M1L (make 1 left or left leaning make one). I have written out the stitch patterns, and included a video for both techniques.
M1R: Pick up a stitch by inserting left needle from back to front into the strand of yarn between the two needles. Knit into the picked up stitch through the front loop.
M1L: Pick up a stitch by inserting left needle from front to back into the strand of yarn between the two needles. Knit into the picked up stitch through the back loop.
Here is a video that shows the M1R and the M1L
