I wasn’t going to bother trying to knit that awful blue yarn on the Knitmaster 4500 but Alex suggested I try it so I did. I really didn’t think it would work but surprise, surprise, it did.
I tried it on tension 5 first and it was a bit too tight but I wasn’t struggling to move the carriage. I moved it up to tension 6 and it was fine.
I did try doing a tuck stitch but it wouldn’t have it, even at tension 10 so I gave up on that idea.
There’s no way I’m going to attempt knitting it with the Ribmaster attached and I don’t think latching up to make a rib would work with this yarn so whatever I make will have to have a folded hem. I’m thinking maybe a plain jacket with possibly a picot hem or maybe just a plain one – I haven’t decided yet. I thought just to break up the plain knitting I might do a lace pattern just above all the hems, or maybe just a couple of rows of eyelets.
If anyone has any other suggestions I’d love to hear them.
Thanks, Alex for suggesting I try it on the Knitmaster 4500.
