4. Garter Carriage

Brother Machines offered an optional accessory called a Garter Carriage (standard gauge 4.5mm machines only). This is a motorized attachment that has a single latched needle that faces the opposite direction from the needlebed of the machine.

Utilizing the motor, the G-carriage automatically reforms each stitch (one at a time).

Needless to say this is a slow process, although it can run almost unattended. It is great not only for garter stitch, but for knit and purl stitch patterns as well.

Many G-Carriage knitters put their machines to use knitting beautiful, textured blankets. But you can do sooo much more!
