Automatic Lace Patterning

Machine Brand Differences

To knit lace with the Brother / Knit King machines, you use 2 carriages and it's a 2 step process.
  • Use the K carriage along with your patterning device (electronics, punchcard or hand selecting needles) to select the needles for your design
  • Use the L carriage to make the transfers

To knit lace with the Singer/Silver/Studio machines, the lace carriage transfers and knits the stitches in one pass. (no switching of carriages between rows)

These lace carriages are only available for standard gauge machines. The carriage literally picks up and bends the machine needles to make the transfers. This would not be possible on mid-gauge or bulky machines.
