...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

A - tension dial. Higher numbers = looser stitches
B - Normal/Hold - to select partial knitting
C - card select, normal knitting, carriage release
D - cam buttons - tuck, slip, fair-isle etc*
E - main yarn feeder
F - contrast yarn feeder

* carriage shown is a Brother chunky KH260. As this machine has no lace, the fair-isle button is split in two, and can also do punchlace
