Knitting Machine Instructions

"Free knitting machine patterns"

Free knitting machine instructions for a basic yet very pretty preemie sweater. I have a very similar sweater completed on the knitting loom and on knitting needles. But this one was completed on a Brother KX 400 standard knitting machine.

Singer knitting machine instructions will work also

These adorable tiny sweaters can be made up so quickly they are ideal for charity knitting. You can easily add any farisle design because everything is completed in blocks.

I created this sweater on a Brother machine but there is no reason why it couldn’t be knit on the Bond Knitting machine or a chunky knitting machine to make a bit bigger sweater. I do not know the tensions on a Bond so you could try it according to the average baby item you knit on the Bond. Although if you were knitting for charity than it wouldn’t really matter if the size turns out a bit different because of the different size babies there at the hospital.

I used thin yarn but not baby yarn on this sweater. There again it can be made up with any verity of yarns just as long as they are soft for the tender baby skin. The ribbing I put on the sweater is a mock ribbing so no ribber is needed for this. Here are your knitting machine instructions for this easy sweater.
