M1 Stitch Inquiry

I'm considering a sweater for myself. (To be able to make a whole sweater for under $40? Holy crap, sign me up! Yay Knitpicks!) In any case, there's an increase (m1) in it that says 'pick up loop between last and next st and work into the back of this loop'. I understand how to do it, but it seems like an odd way of doing it. Could I just k1 into the back and front of the next stitch (or k1 into the front and back of the last stitch) and get the same effect? Or does it really matter which way I increase?

(Ugh, and can I just say that Sirdar patterns, while relatively simple to read, seem to just be written in some obscure dialect of the language of knitting? Probably the difference in country of origin, hey?)
