When we're just getting started, a simple instruction like "Place needles in hold" can give us pause.

At one time machine knitting pattern were written for specific machines. The instruction would read "place needles L15 - L24 to "D" position".

These days, we are using a variety of machines and patterns that may or may not be written for machine knitting. The instructions may not be as specific.

  • What button and levers to use
  • What is happening when we work short row shaping (partial knitting)
  • The purpose of using this technique in the first place.
