Description

Time to sell this great machine. It has been cleaned and oiled and checked out to make sure it is still in perfect condition. It's one of the most popular electronic knitting machines because of ease of use and the 555 built in stitch patterns. If that wasn't enough you can input your own stitch patterns too. This is a standard bed machine (200 needles) 4.5 mm gauge machine. It likes to knit 4 ply, 3 ply, 2 ply, 1 ply yarn on cone so it makes a nice lighter weight sweater. 4 ply on cone is about the thickness of fine baby yarn if you are not familiar with cone yarn. At high tensions you can even knit soft DK yarn. Comes with manuals and tools. With this machine you can knit stocking stitch, fair isle, tuck, slip, thread lace, plaiting, knit weave, and intarsia. It also has a lace carriage so you can turn out beautiful lace too. Buttons on the machine allow you to change the built in patterns so that the design is double width or double length, reverse image or mirror image or even upside down.

It also comes with a ribber, the KR850, which is also in great condition. With the ribber attached you can knit all kinds of ribs, 1x1, 2x2, 3x3 etc., full needle rib, circular knitting, English rib, Fisherman's rib, tuck rib, racked rib and double jacquard.

Another reason for its popularity is that it is also hackable. See the following links.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKpdFIlbqSY https://learn.adafruit.com/electroknit http://yearofopensource.net/the-wonderful-wooly-world-of-hacked-knitting-machines/

Right now it's not set up but it can be if you would like to check it out. I can give you a lesson to get you started if needed. Not shipping at this time. Local pick up only.
