The hand-knitted look in a fraction of the time
I have a silver reed 840 and when I do the first line everything is ok, but when I put the carriage back all the stitches fall off. it works fine if I cast on by hand.
After doing the first row push all the needles out to d position for the next 4/6 rows and knit the rows – this should resolve your problem. After the initial 4/6 rows just knit normally.
