I mostly use a Brother machine to create my knitwear but occasionally use a Knitmaster machine too. Included in all my knitting patterns are punchcards for both Brother and Knitmaster machines where necessary. For those of you who are new to this craft, I shall endeavour to explain a little about how a knitting machine works.
A knitting machine , also known as a knitting frame , knitting loom or hand knitting machine , is used to produce knitted fabrics on a fixed bed of hooked needles. Knitting machines can be hand powered or a motor can be added to do the hard work automatically. The machine knitting pattern stitches can be selected by manipulating the needles by hand or with push-buttons and dials, mechanical punch cards or electronic pattern reading devices and computers.
