Threading Your Innovations Knitting Machine

16 March, 2009 (07:06) | machine knitting | By: admin

I found this a very helpful video for getting started with the Innovations circular knitting machine. There are some voices in the background that were a little distracting. But the instructions are very clear. There’s nothing like the voice of experience to get a new user off to a good start.

For purposes of demonstration, I will be using the circular knitting machine by Innovations. This is an instructional video on how to thread your circular knitting machine. Tips are provided based on my personal experience while I was learning to use this machine. I hope this video helps you.

It takes about 30 minutes to make a hat and approximately an hour granting that your yarn does not snag and runs smoothly on your machine.

The caps I make fit a man’s head. The thinner the yarn, like a 3 ply wool, has more “give” and stretch. It’s as if you were using a larger needle. I imagine that 70 cast on is because the knitting needle is smaller? On my bond, it is 60 cast on stiches and the caps were too big so I am unsure on the volume and tension as I haven’t handknitted in a long time. But to have this is a joy and projects are finished faster!

This is very helpful. I am seriously thingking of getting one. I have a question. How can 44 needles produce a hat that is big enough? On the average, my hat is about 9″ diameter with about >70 cast on using circular needle. Will this machine able to give me the same volume and tension?

Oh Thank you very much! I figured it out. The machine was pretty new when I was posted this message. I’ve completed three scarves. I’m still working with the flat panel side of this. You have to be more careful with the flat panel and I keep getting dropped stitches.

The crank should be clockwise and counter clockwise when removing your work from the machine.

Hello,

I just …
o,

I just got my Innovations Knitting Machine today and am trying to follow your video to thread. I can get all of the “every other posts” done for the first round. Should my crank be in clockwise or counterclockwise? I’m trying to do this for a scarf so my lever is up. And, which way to crank when I’ve got the first row complete?

You should get a medal for your vidio. I got this machine and threw it in the corner because I could not get it to work. I tried it your way and it threaded right up. Please do something on the flat panel as I need to make shawls

The yarn wrapped this way enable the machine to crank smoothly. Using all the loops on the yarn guide made the yarn too tight. It all depends on the thickness of the yarn to enable your machine to turn smoothly so it doesn’t get damaged. But thanks for your concern.

Thanks for the FYI. Though sometimes, the yarn pulled from the center is many times entagled and difficult to pull out. But yes, center is best if it comes out smoothly.

FYI. Most balls of yarn are meant to be pulled from the centre. That way the twist in the yarn is in the correct direction for knitting, and do not have to chase it around the room because it will not roll around much.

Dropped stiches are worked like as in a flat bed knitting machine but a little tricky. I will upload when I’ve perfected an easy way. On the flat panels, yes, it is threaded the same way but loops are formed. I will be uploading that video soon. Thanks for watching! best to you.

Thanks for the video! I just bought this knittng machine. How do you fix dropped stitches? Have you ever made flat panels on this? Do I still thread the same way if I want to do a flat panel? Any help is appreciated!

That’s so cool! I am a hand knitter and crocheter, and I am so slow! Lol. I am making a Harry Potter scarf on circular needles so that it is double thick and has no wrong side, and it is taking FOREVER! I definately want to look into this machine…It looks great!

I’m glad the video helps. I also have smaller circular machines which I ‘m going to upload on my next video. On the socks, for more elasticity, you can crochet 3 chain stiches between each loop when you cast off and that will give you enough slack when you put your socks on. That is on my video line up. Happy knitting!

I got my machine and I made myself a hat. I wear it and everybody on the street like it and stared at me cause it so cute and then a clerk at the store said “it’s so cute”. I knit everybody in my family and in law a hat. Thank you for the videos. I even bought another little tubular machine so that I can make sock :)

hi. loved your demo. how long does it take you to make a hat?
also. there is also another circular knitting machine thats called the addi express. have you tried that one. also is the innovations knitting machine better than the singer knitting machine. i returned my singer knitting machine because it was a mess and always skipped stitches. thanks for your response

I’m not the one who made the demo, but will respond anyway. Usually about 30 minutes for a hat, she said. Yes, I’ve seen the Addi Express, but don’t have it. Which Singer machine did you have?
