    Three Colour, Single Row Height DBJ on the Brother and Superba – Part 2

    Well if you read Part 1, you will know that I had found a method for knitting single row height double-bed jacquard, on the Superba, via a couple of different methods, but not the “offset” method that would, a) keep all the colour changes on the same side of the bed, ultimately allowing for, b) use of a colour changer. Now I must take you back to a conversation I had via email with the makers of Superbaknit back in 2018. At that time, I had been using the “Skip stitch” function to knit DBJ, and noticed that it was limited to three colours. I wanted to use four with…

    Adjusting Sensors and Cursor Timing if SuperbaKnit is Mispatterning

    Hello again everyone! I didn’t get much knitting done over the summer (funny how I don’t want to be locked away in a basement making winter clothes when the sun is shining, birds singing, etc.) but some of you may know from my Instagram that our basement overhaul was finally completed, and I moved my beloved Superba knitting machine back downstairs.

I took the first one off…

    More Lace Knitting on the Superba

    I’m back at it again, this time showing you how to knit a different lace pattern. Instead of knitting two rows and then transferring stitches back to the front bed, this style tucks three rows on the back bed, then knits through the loops, before transferring back to the front bed. The result is a different looking lace, with larger holes: I think it’s quite beautiful, and it’s so simple to knit. All you need is your machine, the GLTC, and the instruction book for the GLTC, which can be found here if you don’t have a hard copy. You can apply the same instructions to a multitude of stitch…

    Lace Knitting

    Look at me with the multiple posts in a week. ūüėČ Well since I was already in the groove of making a video for garter stitch, I thought I’d add another video on knitting lace on your Superba machine. The process of knitting lace is really quite simple, it’s just a matter of getting to know your machine, and your transfer carriage, so it will play along. Firstly, you really don’t want to attempt this for the first time without the instruction manual for the GLTC (garter lace transfer carriage). There’s a lot of checking and re-checking things as you go. I don’t have a hard copy of it, but…
