How to Machine Knit a Tuck stitch on LK150 (hand-manipulated) Here is a basic how-to of the Tuck stitch knitting on the LK150 knitting machine. If you have a different machine, the same principle applies. Just find out the button or dial that does not knit "D" position back to "B" position. Check your instruction manual for the right dial/button. For LK150, there is no punch card or computer-aided patterning, so I just select needle by hand. For punch card machine or computerized machine, you can design your pattern or select pre-made pattern for Tuck stitches. Playlist from

But I was wondering if you sell the extension kits for these machines? I have seen them mentioned in other places on the internet, but since my experience with AllBrands was so great. I'd love to purchase through you all. Thanks so much! Brindsay R.
Brindsay, 50 needle extension kits for Silver Reed LK150 are no longer available from the manufacturer. We have none left and are unable to find one online for you. Keep checking on Ebay. Thanks. John Douthat, Owner and Tech, AllBrands
Hello - can you source the LK-150 50-needle Extension Kit?
Silver Reed no longer makes them
Can you use regular worsted weight yarn with this machine?
Yes, but always knit a narrow test swatch square to make sure you have the tension correct.
Some slubby, nubby, hairy textured yarns knit better on bulky gauge 9 millimeter knitting machines.

Customer (Olivia) phoned to advise she thought we were doing a disservice in our advertising of the Silver Reed Instructional DVD. She was amazed and highly pleased to find Susan Guagliumi as commentator of the DVD - THAT in itself made the DVD highly desirable. She feels that we could generate more interest in sales of the CD if machine knitters knew Susan was on the DVD.
My purchase was handled quickly and efficiently. Thanks!
I have called several times and your customer service reps. were outstanding. Thank You for the great service.
Marie, North Carolina
VERY PLEASED WITH THE SHIPMENT NICELY PACKED NO DAMAGE.
Couldn't belive how fast it came... I love it!
Love my Silver Reed Knitting Machine! Super fast shipping! I was and am extremely pleased!
Excellent, your customer service is amazing, Marquita was so helpful, I kept her name for my next purchase.. I am having some problem understanding the cast on and gauges, but I am sure the internet can help. I am interested in another machine at some point, also have a Janome 8000 machine that I may wish to upgrade and these purchases will be with your company. Thank you.
Excellent service Great postage quick and know where it is at all times.
I was completely satisfied with my shopping experience at Allbrands. I am thoroughly enjoying my knitting machine and will visit your site in the future when shopping for new items. Thank you.
Top service, thank you.
Anita, Powderly, TX
I wrote an email to ask whether the video was included with the machine, and got a reply fairly quickly. Very fast shipping - thank you!

I love this little machine - easy for the beginner, but with plenty of challenges for the "Old Hands". I have had standard gauge and chunky punchcard machines, Japanese and Swiss electronic ones, but it wasn't till I found the LK150 that I really was happy with one. I was originally a hand-knitter and I prefer to use hand qualities or a few machine knit yarns wound together rather than D.K.on a cone. The LK handles it all beautifully. I have all the accessories which just add to the fun of this little machine. If a mistake is made, it can nearly always be corrected - unlike so many other machines, where it is back to the beginning and start again. The only change I am now contemplating is buying a 2nd one - part of which would extend the one I have and the remainder would be a "mini" one.
