I recently bought a KR 10 for my LK 150. While I have been able to get the 1/4 and 1/2 inch mylar sheets, I still don't have the paper patterns that originally came with this gadget.
Could some kind soul tell me how I go about finding a pattern to draw on the mylar sheet? I don't know where to start. I want to make a simple pullover for a woman. Could I trace a pattern from the SK360 paper pattern, or wouldn't that work?
Thanks for the help!

Try this site: http://machineknittingetc.com/singer-silver-reed-knit-radar-patterns.html

Patterns are in PDF format. Print the one you want, then trace onto the mylar.

Can these be printed on 8.5 x 11 sheets? Are they the correct size when printed?

I'll give it a try. I'll print the pdf and compare it to the original and let you know if there is any difference.

Just printed pdf and is not to size with original patterns. They may have been reduced to 1/4 scale.

I have a set of patterns if you want them measured to compare.
I have a KR 10 complete (as well as a few other KR and KL models in my collection :oops: )

The KR 10 can use both 1/2 and 1/4 patterns as described on page 5 of the KR 10 manual.
1/2 scale patterns are inserted with 0 position on the left side.
1/4 scale patterns are inserted with 0 position at center.

1/2 scale is used mostly when knitting with fine yarns 15=30 stitches
1/4 scale is used mostly when knitting with thicker yarns. 9-20.5 stitches

These are actually full size (24" paper). The person that posted them a while back said to get them printed at kinkos, Staples (etc).

If your printer supports it, They can also be printed full size in poster mode. Each pattern will be 6 sheets or so that you would tape together.

Hi Azzara, I just got a kr10 and would like to know if you still have the patterns, I would love to be able to compare them to get the ball rolling on my knitting.
thanks!

Hi Angela, Sorry I don't have the patterns anymore. The patterns were drawn on vellum paper that I taped to the back of the mylar sheet to avoid having to draw on the mylar itself.
