Brother double bed Jacquard

Posted on

On reviewing my notes (taken long ago) to attempt double bed jacquard I have noted that there was a ‘Teach In’ article in the May 1990 edition of MKM (!!!) on jacquard knitting.
After so long, might some one have a copy of that magazine?

Alternatively can some one offer explicite instruction on how to programme the machine and actual knit jacquard successfully?
I am finding the instructions in various manuals that I have, rather confusing and I have had no success so far with my attempts.
Is it that difficult? My husband refuses to wear any fairisle sweater with floats until I master the jacquard tecqnique!

Hi Jayangel

Waste no time in ordering an excellent book from Metropolitan written by Yvonne Knapman. It’s for all Japanese Machines and called The Beginner’s Guide to Double Jacquard Knitting. It’s still sought after by machine knitters anxious to master this beautiful stitch. Yvonne’s book contains instructions on how to begin Double Jacquard which yarn to use tension guides and how to convert Fair Isle to Double Jacquard. It also includes a basic pattern for both adults and children and the cost is just £5 including postage. Yvonne has sold all of her copies but you can still buy the book from Metropolitan by calling 01270-628414.
