I've got a brother bulky and would love some patterns for this machine... so far, I use it to make large square things... and have been brave enough to make a wonderful kids cardigan from a pattern I got from MASTER machine knitter sonja at http://www.fusionknitting.com. I think the best thing about this machine is you can make I cord in 5 minutes and huge square things are great for baby blankets on a last minute baby shower gift or felted items.

I also am intrigued by the book "the prolific knitting machine" where you essentially make squares and then sew and cut them in a half-fashioning manner. Anyone have experience with that?

Hi,

"The Prolific Knitting Machine," by Catherine Cartwright-Jones, has wonderful charts for interesting stitch patterns. And she has good, basic information on cut-and-sew techniques. There is a follow-up book called "The Tap Dancing Lizard" that is just as interesting. She assumes you already know a good deal about both sewing and machine knitting, so there is not a lot of basic instructions. The book is very well illustrated, and very fun to read or browse through. She has a good sense of humor. I've done a lot of cut-and-sew, mostly for necklines or for side seams that I want to take in. If you love to sew, making yardage on the knitting machine opens up whole new creative avenues.
