March 2022 Meeting

The theme this month was Chunky Knitting machines.  Both the club machine Brother chunky and the Chair’s Zippy 90  a plastic bed machine from the 1980’s were brought along to demonstrate some techniques.

Neither of these chunky’s had any automatic patterning so hand tooling was used to show their capabilities.   Many members already have chunky machines – some with punch card patterning, the old Knitmaster 155 has a 12 stitch repeat whilst a Brother has a 24 stitch repeat.  We also looked at various patterns using chunky’s and discussed yarn choices.
