okay I did figure it out,I had the machine mounted on the table to tight causing the middle to pop up plus having the comb weight to heavey as well.

My mom just bought an ultimate sweater machine and we are having trouble with the middle needles popping up and causing the carrier to get caught. Any suggestions? We used #3 with 4ply yarn.

Is that all u need on machine knitter is stockingnett type of knitting? I don't know how to knit and purl. I just thought that it was what was needed! Thanks Brenda

You can knit and purl on a machine, although most machines are better at doing stockinette type stitches (which are mostly plain knit). Are you thinking of getting a knitting machine, Brenda?

hi , my name is Maggie and i just joined kas .

I have been making samples for 10inch squares i  used an ecast on of 40sts and appror 60rows but this depends on the wool.

I have so many different types, so i am sorting them into lots according to there tension eg NO1 for fine, No2 for thicker and No3 for  thicker again adjust the tension on your machine according to what feels right and make swatches
