The knitting looks somewhat like commercially produced knitting. You can knit stockinet stitch and ribbed stitches when you include the ribber. However, this 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, Weaving, Fairisle and Single Motif Isolation and more stitches. There is a basic KH868 Knittng Machine Pattern card set included or you can make your own with an optional puncher and blank cards. Punch cards for this machine are 24 stitch-wide pattern repeats. Most 24-stitch punch cards available from other brands of knitting machines and are interchangeable with this machine. The standard gauge machine is a 4.5 mm needle pitch knitting machine.
