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

Knitting Machine Manuals – Brother, Passap, Studio, Knitmaster, Singer, Silver Reed

So you found a great buy on a used knitting machine. Only one catch – there’s no manual.

Check out some of these free downloads to see if one will work for your Brother, Passap, Studio, Singer, Silver Reed, Knitmaster, Juki, or Toyota machine. Pick the model number closest to your equipment by the same manufacturer. You should be pleasantly surprised at how much information is useful.

When you’ve got your machine up and running, take a peek at the pattern links at the end of this post. There are over 250 pages of scanned sweater, hat, and sock patterns to inspire you.

Brother

PLEASE NOTE: As of the end of 2012, Brother has changed their FTP website again. A login screen appears. Thanks to a comment from a reader below, simply type customer in as both the name and password. A list of available downloads will appear.

Brother’s FTP server

The folder is huge. You will have quicker response by downloading the individual manuals listed below. Also, Firefox seems to work better than Safari when trying to access the site.

Passap

Most of the parts sheets are courtesy of PassapCanada. The rest come from around the web.

Please note that some of her files have moved. If you get a file not found error, click on her name in the previous sentence and you should find what you are looking for.

My Knittings Machines and Me has links to manuals for vintage Knitmaster machines, Bond equipment, looms, and several wool winders. I’ve included the direct links for Knitmaster below. You can access the other links from her site.

Clarisse has uploads of the following Toyota and White/Suberba manuals. Several will come up as boxes on the right hand side of her blog and you can download the pdf sections as needed. Others have dedicated web sites.

Patterns and Miscellaneous

If you know of any knitting manuals lurking freely on the web, please drop a line in the comments. I want this list to grow as much as possible. If you own a blog, I’ll make sure to link to your site where the file is uploaded.

I am looking for accessories for my Studio Reed Silver-SK8 knitting machine. It was my Grandmothers, who handed it down to me, with very little instructions on how to use it. I am asking for any help you might be able to offer i.e. websites, manuals, accessories (cast-on combs) and such. Thank you in advance for any advice you may have. http://www.lacecarriage.com/kmphotos/SK8/SK8.htm

I have received a Maruyama standard gauge knitting machine. It does not have a manual and is not the Princess model. The carriage has “MK-70” on it. Can you help me identify it or lead me to a manual? So far, my extensive internet searching has resulted in little knowledge of this machine.
Thank you so much,
J
