What Knitting Machines Do Best

Tell a hand knitter that you can knit a fairisle hat in an afternoon and they will be amazed. PLUS your fairisle will look sooooo much better than hand knitting.

Automatic patterning machines, (punchcard and electronics) make stranded knitting easy.

The trick is to understand what is happening with your machine and learn to incorporate stitch patterning when you are shaping garment pieces.
