Chunky Knitter Model 155

Posted on

Hi
I bought this machine about 20 years ago and have never used it. I’d like to get started so I set up the machine and I’m just so intimated that I haven’t been able to get past doing anything else. Can I use regular patterns to make a simple sweater? I’m not sure where to start so please help! I’m an intermediate (but slow) knitter and can read patterns fairly well.
Thanks for any help.

Hi
First don’t be afraid! Chunky machines are great to get started on. Is there a club near you? I would try Google or go to your local library to find one otherwise there are on-line courses as well as courses you can actively go on. I’ve just returned from Hereford with Amy Twigger Holroyd who has beginners’ classes on the Knitmaster Chunky 155. You could also try YouTube. Just put in ‘beginner machine knitting’ and select from the short videos. Some are better than others. Good luck stick with it it’s a great hobby. If you’re near Hertfordshire I could maybe help.
Best wishes

Hi
You don’t say the area you have come from but I’ve just bought a 155 and I’m willing to help if you live in the Lincolnshire area.
