2 Ends for a Marled Fabric

Machine knitters, get creative with yarn and color!

  1. Run 2 strands of contrasting (or complimentary) colors together.  The yarn will "automatically" create interesting stripes for a graphic design
  2. Use a yarn twister and the stripes disappear and you get a marled fabric.

What's a yarn twister?
A yarn twister is a nifty device that looks similar to a yarn winder. It gives you the ability to twist multiple strands of yarn together.
Lots of options:
Twisting will blend colors and change the texture of the resulting yarn strand. You can twist a fancy or textured yarn with a plain yarn. Make thicker yarn and interesting yarn combinations.

You can find twisters in the used equipment market search for Daruma Yarn Twister. There are also new twisters available from fellow machine knitter, Kris Krafter (see video below)

This sample is full needle rib (all needles in work on both beds)
