Knitting machines galore since one is never enough, photo tutorials, and knits gone wild

Free Knitting Patterns for Machine, Passap, and Hand Knit

I’ve created three new pages at the right in my Navigation sidebar.

Free Knitting Patterns – Hand
Free Knitting Patterns – Machine
Free Knitting Patterns – Stitch Designs

The Hand and Machine pages are a collection of photo links back to the posts where the patterns originally appear. I’ve included a brief description of the equipment I used.

This should make searching a lot easier.

On the Stitch Designs page you will find my blog banners in Designaknit .pat format, Win_Crea .cut format, and as .gif files to print out for hand knitting. Since I make these designs for my blog header rather than actual knitting, you may need to limit some of the colors per row unless you are into multi-colored double bed jacquard or intarsia.

If you don’t have DesignaKnit, the easiest way to alter the stitch designs is to download the freeware Win_Crea. You can then change the colors, stretch the graphic, add columns, delete rows, etc. Simply save your changes back to the .cut file or print screen to make a graphic for hand knitting.

Thanks for the great links! I’m new to knitting and am always on the lookout for projects to try. I wanted to pass along a site I found that has a few basic how to videos with tips on knitting. I’m not sure if you’re interested in how to knit videos, but I found these useful when I was just starting out.

Marcella,

The best way to help is to tell a machine knitting friend about my site and help me grow. The more visitors I have, the more motivated I am to photograph new tutorials.

There is nothing worse than pouring your heart into a project and no one visits.

Kate,

Thank you for taking the time to offer a link. Unfortunately, my spam filter appears to delete links unless they are typed out in full.

Love this site. I just dug out my old knitting machine and couldn’t cast on to save my life! I read your tutorial and discovered I wasn’t threading it properly. Thanks!

Just bought an old Pinkie and find your site wonderful for tips on using it..
I have only used brother and knitmaster machines before and I find it strange not to have any weights with this machine..
I may try to find some weights that I could use as I think it would work better with some..what is your veiw on that please..Pearl

I find weights help when I’m doing tuck patterns. The only catch, coming from a Japanese machine point of view, is that you have to use Passap 5mm combs. They are hard to find.

I have decided to start using my Brother 965i. I have never used the patterning on this machine, and I know I have the manual but would love to see how to use the patterning on video – can you recommend any? I learn much easier that way.

I urgently need a knitting machine Manual for a Empisal 260K knitting Machine.
I will really appreciate it if someone can forward me a soft copy via Email.
Thank you
