    Looks so easy when you do it. You do a great job! What is your favorite kind/brand of knitting machine?

      My favourite machine is the one I’m using at the time! I love my Bond. When I’m using the Silver Reed I love that one. I love my Singer. At the moment I’m using the Toyota and I love it. I have no affection for Brother machines but that’s only because I’ve never used one.

    Excellent Susan. A really informative, clear video. Knitting two rows after the body is attached is a good idea. I normally only do 1 row but I will try the two rows next time. The calculation of the stitches is really interesting too. I will also give that a definite thumbs up. Yvonne

      Thanks, Yvonne. The only reason I did two rows was so that the carriage would end up on the right. I prefer casting off from the right rather than the left. I don’t know if that second row makes any difference to how the neckband looks.

    I truly love your videos Susan, they have helped me so much, thank you. It is just like having a teacher in my own home. I can’t learn by someone talking all the time, I need them to show me each step, which is why I have learned so much from you.

    I agree with Yvonne about the calculation of stitches and also the use of two rows – very helpful.

      Thanks. Up to now the calculation of stitches for the neck has worked out OK for me but I’m not sure if it would work for different sizes.

    Beautiful job! Thanks so much for sharing your projects…

    Hello Susy Thank you for sharing this with us. It’s beautiful.

  7. I would suggest you knit one stockinette row after you have finished transferring the stitches of the neckband from the ribber to the main bed. This will give a better effect.

    Excellent! I have never been satisfied with how neckbands turn out and yours always look so good.
    Thanks for the video. Very helpful and encouraging.

    Another great video with excellent tips but I have to say, I was very excited to see the clear plastic you put over the ribber when just using the main bed. Such a simple idea (which I’ve never seen before) that would save the frustration of knitting (and/or skin!) getting stuck on ribber hooks. Brilliant!

      I clip both sides of the plastic together at the bottom with a couple of plastic clamps but you could use bulldog clips. It just stops it from moving about and falling off.
