knitting machine ribber weight hanger

7hanger3

When knitting narrow bands on the ribber, it doesn’t make sense to use a 100+ stitch ribber cast on comb.

Try using the “7” weight hanger that comes with most ribbers.

Simply hook the hanger over your zig zag row to weight the work.  Hang a weight, or just hold the hanger to add weight to your knitting.

TIP: If you knit this style of band often, it would be worth investing in a spare ribber cast on comb and have it cut into small widths.

We recently re-discovered this tip when knitting bands with vertical buttonholes.  So much easier than fussing with the cast on comb.
