Cap Sleeved Top

  

This was a quick knit just to test out the Knit Copy again. I found the pattern in an old Modern Knitting magazine and just copied the schematics onto the pattern sheet.

The only thing I had a problem with was the neckband. I’m used to knitting neckbands with a ribber but I don’t have one for the Singer KE2400 so I did a folded mock rib band. I haven’t quite got the knack of doing the neckband like that but I think I got away with this one. I did the armbands the same way and did a better job of them so I think I’ve nearly ‘perfected’ my method.

I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying using this machine. I have yet to figure out if it will do single motifs but I have a feeling it won’t. I also don’t know if I can do intarsia on it, I will have to have a play but it won’t be until after I’ve knitted my next project which I’ll be knitting a swatch for shortly.

Short Sleeved Top On The Singer KE2400

 

A very kind lady called Ann who reads my blog sent me, amongst other things, a Knit Copy device for my Singer KE2400. I am thrilled to bits with it and would go as far as to say I like it better than the Knit Radar that I use with my Silver Reed and Knitmaster machines.

I found a top that I liked in one of my old Modern Knitting magazines and copied the schematics onto the pattern sheet. Using this sheet I produced the short sleeved top pictured above.

The yarn I used was from a job lot that I bought off Ebay. It is a very fine crepe type yarn and I had to knit two strands together to produce a thickness similar to 3ply. The original plan was to knit it all in green but unfortunately there wasn’t enough so I improvised with the pink.

The Knit Copy is a piece of cake to use and I fully intend to put it to work again very shortly when I knit up some more of the yarn from my Ebay purchase.
