Looks interesting. Exactly how does it work? From what I can see, it looks like you cast on the stitches as you would for a corker/French knitting and then crank away. Can you do different types of stitches or just stocking stitch? Have you used it for flat and round knitting?

Sorry for all the questions but I would love to get something like that.

Sylvia, it looks like you can only knit in the round. Are you able to knit flat, too?

hi all
you cast on 44 stitches and it works in the round or flat there is a crank that you turn i have made a couple scarfs and it looks fine
flat knitting is done by turning the crank clokwise to the end of the stitches and counterclockwise to the other end it is like knitting back and forth right now it is working out for me because i have to finish my things for the salvation army by november 20
i would never knit a sweater on this machine but they do have a pattern for it maybe when i have less to do i am sure that there must be a mary maxim in your area have a looke at it
