Surprising Yarn Choice for Machine Knitters

If you have a mid-gauge knitting machine you may not be taking full advantage it. One of the best things of the 6.0, 6.5, or 7mm machines is their ability to knit a WIDE RANGE of yarns.

Consider this:
These 2 swatches were knit with the SAME YARN. It’s Yeoman Sport (100% Superwash wool – one of my all-time favorites).

The yarn is approx 2000 YPP (yards per pound). It knits beautifully on the standard gauge machine. BUT … the swatch on the right is knit on my LK-150 knitting machine (mid-gauge). The drape and hand are beautiful!

Yeoman Sport yarn on cones for machine knitting
Another plus …. this yarn is on cones!

So if you have some thinner yarn in your stash … consider giving it a try on your mid-gauge machine. You might be pleasantly surprised!
