The gauge of a hand knitting pattern will indicate what machine you should use with the recommended yarn.
This stitch gauge is a very popular gauge for hand knitting with “worsted weight” yarn.
What’s a Charting Device? Many machine knitters prefer this visual method of shaping their knitting. Draw your design and follow the outline. Cast on, bind off, increase and decrease according to the visual stitch and row indicators.
I had to wait for everyone to be out of the house. Snuck the package into my studio. Had to hide the packing material evidence.
Shhhh…..Don’t tell my better half …. I adopted a new machine!
My new-to-me Brother KX 350 is so much fun! The 350 is a lighweight (translated: plastic bed) mid-gauge machine. No patterning, minimum of levers and buttons and knits like a dream!
Reasons for the addition:
BTW – I picked up my new machine from listing our the Knit it Now Classifieds pages. This service is free and has found new homes for many machines, books and accessories. http://classified.knititnow.com/
The unusual construction of this yarn appealed to me, plus it’s a closeout $5 off per ball!
I plan to knit a machine knitting version of this summer top. What will you knit with this interesting yarn?
Stay tuned! (Mine will be pink and purple .. .can’t wait!)

Tubular knitting is an easy technique and has lots of possibilities, but . . . . how do you bind off?
Think about it … maybe you normally use a round-the-gate peg bind off, and you start on the right side of the main bed. What happens when it comes time to bind off the ribber stitches … ever try working backwards and upside down on the ribber?
