Techniques for Manual Machines

The LK-150 like the Brother 350 or other manual machines does not have a punchcard or electronics to automatically select needles for tuck, slip, fairisle or other stitch patterns. That does not limit you to plain stockinette, it just means you have to learn to select the needles for stitch patterns AND understand the levers and needle positions to create beautiful textures and patterns.

The following tutorials (and others in the Knit it Now Learning Library) may be demonstrated on a different machine, but the concepts apply to your LK-150 (or any non-automatic patterning machine).

Hand manipulation is often done on all styles of machines. Don't feel left out if you don't have automatic patterning.
