Design Orientation

If you are using an asymmetric design, be aware of how you are inserting the card. The final orientation of the design will depend on how you are knitting your garment.
  • Top down or hem up knitting
  • Right Side or wrong side facing stitch patterns
Test the design and the orientation of the card before starting your garment.

Some of the original punchcards had A-B-C-D markings on the card. Pattern instructions may have read "Insert Card 9B". This insured that you inserted the card #9 with the letter B at the lower corner and your design would match the pattern.
