Welcome...

...to the Machine Knitting 101 blog. Over the next few months, I'm going to post pictures of various MK techniques, so this will become an online reference guide for how things look!

There will be pictures of various cast-ons, cast-offs, cables etc. It should be an interesting resource!

Anatomy of a carriage - main bed and ribber




A - tension dial. Higher numbers = looser stitches
B - Normal/Hold - to select partial knitting
D - cam buttons - tuck, slip, fair-isle etc
E - main yarn feeder
G - colour change lever. When raised, will activate colour changer
H - pile knitting lever
I - carriage disengage. Will unlock ribber carriage from main carriage
J - Normal/Hold - to select partial knitting
K - tension dial. Higher numbers = looser stitches
L - Slip levers. Carriage will slip stitches in that direction, if lever set to 0. Used for circular knitting.
Z - electronic cable connection (obscured by handle)

Carriage shown is an SK840 electronic machine, and SRP60N ribber
