Brother Style Single Bed Cast On Comb three piece set for 4.5 mm machines - This is the same as the original standard gauge full bed width cast on comb as made by Brother. The long comb is 63 cm or 25" long; the shorter comb is 28 cm or 11" long; the connector holds the two pieces together. Connected, the single bed cast on comb is equal to the full width of the bed.
This product features sharp wire hooks that easily hook into the knitting. The best way to hang the cast on comb after your first row of knitting, is to present the comb to the right side of the needle leaning the cast on comb slightly against the sinker post. The hook is inserted into the part of the yarn that travels from the needle to the back of the sinker post. This positions the comb so it doesn't get caught and travel up into the sinker plate causing a jam. If you also hold and pull the comb slightly towards the knitting machine, it will also help the carriage to knit cleanly.
Once the cast on is complete, hang any number of claw weights on the cast on comb for additional control.
This cast on comb is also available to fit bulky width machines. It matches the width of the Brother bulky knitting machine.
