Innovation knitting machine question
I watched the video (copied right at the point it shows it)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...ailpage&a...;;

you see her crank it all the way 1 way then all the way the other

but in a seperate video i saw a women holding the yarn and skipping 4 needles everytime she hit the edge

Which method do i do for scarves?? I would rather do the first video from commerical but would that be a bad idea or no??


also how many stiches cause 40 or so makes the scarf 17inchs wide

is that 2 much

Hi and welcome! I couldn't get your link to work but here's one that shows the machine. I don't have the machine but you could just try both methods yourself and see how it goes. The advantage of trying it out is that you'll be making a gauge swatch at the same time. That'll give you an idea of how many stitches per inch your yarn gives and then you can figure out how many sts to cast on for whatever width scarf. Watch out for curling edges on the scarf if you work back and forth, however. One of the advantages of knitting a tube is that you avoid this problem.

ok 1: that video you linked is the same as mine expect i copied it at a later time.

2: i have tried doing the line knitting and its caused issues

3: if i do the line its 40 stiches i beilve and it is like 17inches wide then.

4: i know it curls is there a way to prevent that or no?

5: i dont think its possible to do a tube scarf knitting on this machine (im 50% sure)

Usually the cure for curling is to add a border in garter or seed stitch to the edges. I'm not sure how much you can vary the pattern with this machine. An alternative might be to work back and forth and then seam the scarf the long way. That would make a tube and essentailly prevent curling.

She did try to help you by giving you basic info for a scarf. I couldn't add anymore myself. Unless someone owns the machine that's probably all we can tell you.

Unfortunately I don't have the machine and don't have a clue how to set it up. You can knit a scarf in a tube.. it makes a warm cushy scarf. It also won't curl which is a bonus. So basically if you make a hat, but keep going and bind off so it's not gathered it would be good for a scarf. That's about all I can tell you.

Bubba, most of the people on this forum hand knit, so unless someone owns and uses a knitting machine--the exact machine you're talking about--we can only give you general directions.

I assume you've tried contacting the manufacturer, asking questions under the videos on YouTube, and looking for machine knitting forums? If you've tried all these methods, then your best bet may be to try both methods in the video and see if either will work for what you want.

If that advice is frustrating to you, then I'm sorry, but very few people here machine knit, meaning it's uncharted territory for the majority of us!
