Brown Merino scarf

I decided to try a different tuck stitch pattern and used every other needle on the machine. Look through the pictures and you can see the various stages of its development from blocking to being finished.

Tuck lace swatch

I tested out this alternating tuck lace stitch with red cotton. Not really happy with it. Might be better with the tension dial at 3 or 4…


Green tuck lace shawl

I had some beautiful silk and wool yarn blend that I decided to make a tuck lace shawl out of on my brother KX350 knitting machine. I used 60 needles and started with an E wrap and did the first 10 rows plain then for the tuck lace stitch I put on hold every third needle and did three passes then three passes off hold. I set the tension dial to 5. The length is 526 rows. Then I wet blocked it overnight. I noticed when I blocked it there were a few places on the edges that the needles did not pick up fully so I had to make some minor repairs. Overall I think it turned out OK.

Machine knitting tuck stitch swatch

I decided to try a new stitch on the knitting machine so I used cotton thread and using 32 needles and the tension dial set at six, I did a few rows then put in hold position every third needle. Then I would knit three rows on hold position then three rows off the hold position and so forth. Now I’ll have to try this on a scarf or something 🙂
