We discussed how to knit a tension swatch, then measure it for setting up the different machines and charting devices.
On show were a Knitmaster with Knit Radar, a Brother electronic with a full-sized Knitleader, and a Brother 881 with a built in half-sized Knitleader.
We demonstrated how to use the charting device, and completed knitting bags with built in gussets.
Pat was wearing the new pattern Charlotte which can be downloaded by clicking on the picture.
Pat had also knitted two different collars from the cowl pattern in the newsletter, which can be downloaded here. Instructions for these collars will follow next month.
We also gave out stitch rulers for a 40 stitch by 40 row swatch. These can be downloaded as a pdf here.
And, for Brother Knitleader users who don’t have their millimetre ruler to hand, you can download one here. This will need a bit of cut and paste. When printing out rulers, set it to print actual size, not fit to page.
