Knit Leader L116

Posted on

I have knitted a swatch on my brother KH260 60 rows and 40 stitches as required but the measurements between these points are to big to choose the relevant settings on the knitleader.

Can this be done or will it only work on standard gauge machines? I would be very grateful for some information.

Thanks
Kath

Hi make a swatch 20 stitches and 30 rows. Knit 15 rows and mark the 11th needle each side knit 15 more rows.
See page 45 in the instruction book. You should have stitch scales provided with the chunky machine which fit the Knitleader.

Thank you for that information its a great help now coming back into machine knitting after 20+ years and have again a chunky and standard machine. I’ve forgotten everything!

I am trying to find what the little green ruler is for – I can remember using it to measure between markers but can not remember how to read it and was it for use with knitleader or not the little grey cells are not working.

Thank you once again for your response

Hi Kath
The green ruler is for measuring swatches done on the standard gauge machine – there is a blue one for the chunky.
You line up the end with ‘s’ against the left marked stitch and read off the stitches to 10cm at the other marked stitch.
Similarly for rows with the other side.
For the Knitleader you have to measure 40 sts with a ruler and find the appropriate stitch scale then measure 60 rows and turn the dial on the Knitleader to the corresponding setting.
Hope this helps
