Stitch formation on this loom is the same as on any Kiss. The the difference is the gigantic gauge. it makes the work progress gratifyingly fast and produces nice thick chushiony fabric for rugs, thick blankets and household goods such as this chair seat pad.

In this video we knit a cup cozy that looks like a sweater. There is a written pattern for the same design that includes many gauges. The demo is on a Kiss FG-2 loom using #2 yarn and 48 pegs, knitted in the round. If you need a Kiss Loom visit http://www.kisslooms.com. To buy the pattern visit http://www.theanswerlady.com and navigate to the loom knitting index from the home page

Here's a decorative non-rolling edging that may be worked on any machine. demo shows it as a cardigan band but it could also finish hems, blankets, etc. The cardigan I'm working on in the video will be part of. new collection soon available at http://www.theanswerlady.com

This is a good technique for those who like to have portable projects as well as those who don't have ribbers. It's also nice simply to have alternative hems. The technique may be used on many knitted items. In the video, I'm working on developing a pattern that will probably appear in Country Knitting of Maine News & Views sometime in 2018.

Basketweave stitch has a woven appearance due to a specific combination of knit and purl stitches. Here's one way to accomplish it. for great machine knitting books, visit http://www.theanswerlady.com

Ever wondered what's inside? Here's a good look. This isn't a complete how to about getting in and out but Jack does point out a number of things that will help if you need to go into your machine and some helpful tips for re-assembly. For those who never plan to go this far in, it can simply be an interesting look. More MK books and videos at http://www.theanswerlady.com

This is a technique that may be used on any machine and many projects. It is demonstrated here on my Kerchief Shawl pattern which will be published soon in News & Views and shortly in an upcoming book "Top Down Togs". Find my books and other videos at http://www.theanswerlady.com

Parts of the selection mechanism on electronic Brothers are very much like those on punchcard machines and can also get physically dirty and need cleaning. Here's a quick look at the cam rod on a 930 getting cleaned up. Beneath it but less visible in the video are selector rods that can also be dirty. We show you how to access the cam rod but not how to get into the case in this movie. We have other videos showing that and it will be needed to do a deeper cleaning than we did here. You can find our other videos indexed at http://www.theanswerlady.com

This machine arrived with 2 carriages, one bed and some issues. But it's happy and ready to go home, now. This is the machine used in the free hat knit-along at this link:
