Brother/Knitking Knitting Machines
These machines/accessories are no longer made and,
therefore, no new ones are available.
Prices are shown for your information only.
If possible, you should purchase your knitting
machine from a local or nearby dealer to afford yourself the help and knowledge available
at a dealer location. But if there is no dealer nearby, we will gladly provide you with a
machine, accessories and limited assistance.
These are the same machine,
except for the name and color. All parts of like machines are interchangeable.

The Japanese-made Brother and Knitking knitting
machines may be purchased as punch card machines or as electronic machines. These machines
may be purchased as standard-gauge machines, with 200 needles 4.5 mm apart, or as bulky
machines, with 114 needles 9 mm apart. The farther apart the needles, the thicker the yarn
which can be used. The closer the needles, the thinner/finer the yarn which can be used.
Standard-gauge machines may accommodate thicker yarns by knitting on every other needle or
every third needle. However, as the available number of needles becomes less, the width of
the actual knitted piece becomes narrower.
A punchcard machine can produce a pattern which is
24 stitches wide. However, that pattern can be repeated across the width of the knitted
piece or positioned in a specific location, which is then called a motif. The pattern MUST
be either 24 stitches or a number evenly divided into 24.
An electronic machine can produce a pattern from
one stitch to as many stitches wide as there are needles on the machine: 200 stitches wide
for a standard-gauge machine or 114 stitches wide for a bulky-gauge machine.
Brother/Knitking knitting machines may produce a
wide variety of stitch patterns with little to no effort. You may knit a fairisle pattern;
a single or multi-color tuck stitch pattern; a single or multi-color slip/skip stitch
pattern; a drop lace, thread lace, normal lace or fine lace pattern. You may knit weave on
the machine. You may make reversible plated patterns. Using an optional ribber attachment,
you can do jacquard knitting, which is fairisle knitting with no floats.
Using your IBM-compatible personal computer, you
may scan in patterns to a program, manipulate the pattern in any way you choose, download
the pattern and/or the shape, and knit it. Using drawing tablets, you may draw your own
pattern into the computer or even have a child draw his/her own original creation which
you can then knit.
Only the Brother/Knitking machines have a Garter
Carriage available. This is an optional accessory which allows you to knit and purl in the
same row on a single bed machine unattended. It is an automatic knitting carriage using
only one color of yarn at a time. This accessory knits only on the standard-bed machine.
There is no like part for the bulky-gauge machine or for any other brand of knitting
Additional optional accessories are available, such
as a ribber, a four-color changer, a garter bar, a linker, a transfer carriage, and a
KnitLeader. Each has its own function to either assist in the initial knitting or in the
