Artisan 260 Bulky Punch Card Knitting Machine with Bulky Ribber
A bulky knitting machine knits fabric that looks just like hand-knitting, only better and faster using heavier double knitting (DK), worsted and bulky yarn. You can knit stockinette stitch on the main knitting machine bed and ribbed stitches when you include the ribber. However, this bulky knitting machine can also use a Punch Card to create knitting stitch patterns automatically. Place a punch card in the machine and activate it. Now you can automatically knit Thread Lace, Tuck, Slip stitches, Fair Isle and Single Motif Isolation and more stitches. There is a basic Bulky Knitting Machine Pattern Card set included or you can make your own with an optional puncher and blank cards. Bulky punch cards for this machine are 24 stitch-wide pattern repeats. 24-stitch punch cards are available from other brands of knitting machines and are interchangeable with this machine. This bulky gauge knitting machine has a 9 mm needle pitch. This means there are 9 mm between the needles which is wide enough to accept double knitting weight up to bulky weight yarn. Thus the name bulky knitting machine. For fingering weight yarn, you will want to look at the 4.5 mm or standard gauge knitting machine.
Bulky Ribbing Attachment:
The bulky ribber is included and is also 9 mm pitch, with 110 needles. For Rib Knitting and Double Bed Fair Isle patterns. Included is a D Slider used to make dropped-stitch designs. If you are not using the bulky ribbing attachment, it drops down out of the way or it can be detached and stored.
Optional knitting machine stand available. PLEASE NOTE: All knitting machine sales are final.
