Brother KL116 Knit Leader & KH260 chunky machine

Posted on

Hi
I’ve drawn out a pattern on the Knit Leader sheets and done a swatch with the wool and pattern I’ll be using.The problem I’m having is that there’s no ruler to match my swatch. The length for the 60 rows is fine but there’s no ruler for the width. Can anyone give me any help please?
Thank you.
Kathy

Hi Kathy
Pages 45-47 of the KH260 Instruction Manual give instructions for knitting your tension swatch. The measurements you need are taken over 20 sts and 30 rows.
Do you have the stitch scales numbered from 1-24 that come with the chunky machine? When you put the sheet into the Knit Leader and the scale which matches the measurement of 20 sts into the slot at the front you’ll see the number of stitches to cast on. You set the measurement for the 30 rows on the Knit Leader itself. I hope I’ve managed to point you in the right direction.
Kind Regards.

Dear Anne
Thank you for your e-mail directing me to your website. Another reader was having problems as well and a reply came saying look in the accessories of the Brother 260 and a set of stitch numbers should be included. Well I spring cleaned a chest full of knitting and sewing bits and pieces and yes – there they were hidden under several books and bags of felt and all the sizes that I need. Thank you very much.
