A knitting machine can knit in seconds what might take hours to produce by hand. Still, there are plenty of stitches and effects that the machine cannot execute automatically. For these, your hands take charge.Hand-Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters is a rich sourcebook that includes detailed information on all types of hand-manipulated stitches: twisted, wrapped, woven, lifted, rehung, transferred and cabled. All techniques are described in generic language, suitable for any knitting machine. In addition, the first chapter offers a clear description of how machines form stitches and is especially helpful for new knitters. A companion DVD to this book is keyed to text pages and offers additional explanation for techniques covered in the book.This edition of Hand-Manipulated Stitches is identical to the original, 1990 Taunton Press edition, though it does include a number of corrections that came to light after the initial publication.show more
