Subject for Tuition

1. Ribbing & Double bed work

This a technique which is very under used. To most machine knitters the term Ribbing means welts, neckbands and cuffs. To the more experienced knitter doublebed fairisle or perhaps double bed tuck stitch can be quite an adventure. In the simple stages, variations on a plain rib such as cable or racking for the welts would open up new horizons. Ribbed skirts with many different needle formations; double bed Jacquard with different textured backgrounds and Slip or Tuck stitch with special needle formations. The permutation are endless.
2. Skirts
Sideways, Panelled, Pleated & Ribbed Skirts are a few of the many ways to knit skirts and all have variations with fairisle, tuck, slip stitch and weaving added to make interesting effects.
3. Patterning by Hand Selection
This subject can be very interesting and rewarding, most people think if you have an automatic patterning device such as the punchcard or electronics that hand selection is unnecessary, this of course is quite untrue. The way to work out an automatic pattern is often done by hand selection and many other textures can be developed this way.
4.Tuck & Slip for Single & Doublebed Fabrics
This is a very interesting subject, with more detailed instruction on how to produce beautiful fabrics in Tuck & Slip stitch with advice on using them the "Cut & Sew" method.
5. Lace & Lace Effects
Understanding how to use your lace carriage and make up your own designs. The difference between the Punch/Thread Lace, Flat, Fine & Fashion Lace. The Lacey effects of needles out of work and short row knitting.
6.Creating your own Designs
This is where you learn to use Charting devices (Knitleader - Knitradar - etc), working with colour and textured Fabrics.
7. Collars, Cuffs, Neckbands & Welts
The way a garment is finished can make all the difference to it. Learn the classic & the fashion designs to make a simple garment into a stunning one.
8.Maintenance & Understanding your Machine
Learn how your machine works and looking after it is an essential part of knitting, it takes out the headaches that are caused by not knowing.
9.Cut & Sew
Cut & sew neck lines for fancy knitware, alter the size and shape with confidence. Knit your own fabrics and learn how to make stunning outfits with dressmaking patterns.
10.Attachments & Accessories

What is available for the different makes & models of machines. Can I? Can't I? Add this to my machine, and What does it do?
11.Pattern Conversion Passap/Pfaff to Japanese Machines

You like a pattern but can't knit it on your machine, why not? Perhaps you can! Knowing the language off both types of machine will be of great use to you.
12.Weaving & Plating
Discover the advantages of Weaving for heavier fabrics, Plating to introduce a second colour with a flair and makes a more stable finish.
