Do Brother 24 stitch punch cards work on the Studio/Singer SK-360?

On the Singer punch cards, you start on line 1, so on a Brother card you start on line...5? I know nothing about Brother. Thank you.

If you look at a Singer card there are 5 rows punched below row 1.On a Brother card there are 7 rows.So a Brother card has to be wound down into a Singer only 5 rows and will read 2 rows before the end of the card,i.e. on a 60 row card the start will be row 59.
Try it out by locking the card to see if the selected "fingers" show the first row.

Hi There, I have brother KMs and a book of punch card patterns that show which line to start on for each machine. A brother machine shows the 7th row above the actual row being knit, the singer shows the 5th. If you're using a brother punch card, start 2 rows below the line marked as 1.

Hope that helps,

Kate

Because of the different style of reading and doing lace work, the brother punchcards for lace work will not work on the silver reed/singer/studio machines. Otherwise the cards can be used for either brand of machine for fairisle, tuck, or slip stitch.
