If you have a punchcard, or non-electronic knitting machine you can use the Interactive Knitting feature of DesignaKnit. Interactive Knitting is an electronic version of a Charting Device where you can create instructions to shape your knitting visually.

LK-150 Setup

The Setup

If you have a DAK cable for an electronic machine, you can use it to connect another machine. You can also purchase a Universal Cable for on-screen knitting. There are 3 parts to setting things up:

1Insert the USB Connection to a port on your computer

2Securely position the black box. (I've used a small container to raise it up) Using Velcro makes a secure, temporary connection

3Securely position the silver magnet arm to your carriage. (Make sure it passes close to the black box receiver, but doesn't hit the machine mast or row counter)

DesignaKnit can be used with any machine.

If the electronics on your machine are no longer working, use DAK as if it were a manual machine.

You can use the same cable setup when switching between machines.
