Please could someone let me know the garter carriage No. that would be suitable for my Brother 890 machine.
I need to know the correct number for a garter carriage compatible with my Brother 890. I’ve been offered one, but want to make sure that it will be compatible with my machine.
My problem is that the second colour is not knitting at all. I’ve followed the instructions in the manual but I’m not sure I’m threading the second yarn correctly. Any help much appreciated.
In my earlier machine knitting days, I had a lovely jumper pattern. It was portrayed in a deep wine colour and was a lady’s jumper with a lacy bodice and a yoke. I think it was a Jarol pattern, but I can’t be too sure about this. The mill was in Milnsbridge, Yorkshire and I used to go direct to the mill to buy my yarn, which was a silky texture. I also knitted samples of this jumper for them. I’ve searched eBay and other sites for patterns, but to no avail. Can anyone help me please?
I’ve just returned to knitting after many years absence and no longer have any patterns. I’d like to start again with an easy drop shoulder crew neck design for children. I just wondered if anyone could point me towards instructions for a child’s 22 to 24 inch pattern using standard 4-ply yarn?
Want to learn a new skill or maintain an existing one whilst knitting for charity? If the answer is ‘yes’ then why not join the north Liverpool machine knitting club, also known as Knit Wits. Members meet every Wednesday from 7.00 to 9.00 pm at the YMCA in Park Street, Bootle L20 9AD. Everyone is welcome!
I’ve hand knitted for years but about a month ago I was given a
Brother knitting machine with lots of attachments and I don’t know were to
start as I have never used one before. I’m keen to learn, but we have no
clubs were I live and I know no-one with a machine who can help me – hence my request for someone with Skype.
Thank you, Ann
I’m just getting back to machine knitting and need help on the subject of tension. Is there anyone who can help me with the recommended tension on a Passap for stocking stitch, tuck and Fair Isle using Panama and Yeoman 50/50. Any help would be appreciated.
There is a good website for all things Brother: www.scanthecat.com. As your machine has a built-in rail for the garter carriage and is one of the later machines it suggests that you can use any garter carriage on it.
