The Differences Between Machines

The different brands of machines have different punchcard mechanisms. Although many cards are interchangable, lining up the first row of knitting can be different for each machine.

When you insert the card, the first row of the design "disappears" into the punchcard opening. You need to establish where the first row of the stitch pattern is located inside the mechanism.

Once you determine the location for your machine, mark your own line on your card so there's no guessing the next time.
