Knitting carriage that selects and transfers stitches for lace patterns
Different models have different approaches to lace carriages:
Brother Lace Carriage
Brother lace carriage is used alternately with the main knitting carriage. Based on instruction from the patterning device (electronic or punchcard), the lace carriage selects and transfers stitches. The main carriage is then used to knit the row
Singer/Silver Lace Carriage
Silver/Singer lace carriages work independently of the main knitting carriage. The lace carriage, selects, transfers and knits the row.
