I adore the G-Carriage.....but right now I can't remember the exact settings to cast off with the machine. The Instruction Manual wasn't made when the 970 was produced and therefore the instructions aren't "exact" to that machine using the CB-1. I have to use a different setting for both the cast on and the cast off. I finally remembered how to do the automatic cast on, but my aged brain can't remember what to set the CB-1 to for the cast-off. All it does is to knit another row, and I had to manually do the cast-off. Anybody here have a younger brain that works properly. The funny thing is that I did a cast-off on this exact configuration a long time ago, and I just can't remember what I did Thanks folks!!

If you check the KG95 manual on Page 24 it says make sure Knitting machine is off. No settings

Thanks a lot. Haven't tried it yet, since I have 57 rows to go. That's what I get for starting my reading on Page 25, not the page earlier. I'm working on a copy of a sweater that I saw on HD program from the Met.....worn by one of the famous opera singers, and therefore I call it my "Renee sweater." The bottoms of the body of the sweater are knitted sideways, and I'm just finishing up the second "bottom." If this works out, it will be a miracle, but what the heck....why not give it a try. Thanks again....I really appreciate it.

G-carriage directions are in your 970 manual.

Not the casting on or casting off. I (by accident) found that you have to go to "Main Menu" to do the automatic cast-on. But the same hasn't applied to the
automatic "cast-off." 37 more rows before I can try the "turn it off" to do tje cast-off. At least I got 20 rows done while we were talking about this.
PROGRESS.

Did you turn off the console to cast off? That is what you need to do.

The cast off can be tight. I usually knit the last row looser and turn the tension dial up a bit for the cast off. I find it also helps to pull 'spare' yarn through the upper tension unit as well and lift* the knitting onto the gate pegs as the GC works its way across (*this gives the knitting some support and thakes the strain off the cast off).

The instructions for casting on and off are in the 970 manual.

I put a video in the Brother 970 group on Facebook on using the GC on a 970. It was my first time using it and I left in all the mistakes I made!
