I am knitting an item that is worked from the top down. I am using a Brother 940 (electronic machine). What is the best way to program a pattern that must begin at the end of the pattern and continue on to the beginning of the pattern?
Variation key 5 upside down if you already have the pattern, or if you still have to draw it and program you can program it in from the top.
😀It always helps to read the instruction manual, doesn't it? Thank you.

Not sure that I understand your question properly. If it was worked in the round, I would probably not do it on a machine, but if there are four or five normal pieces (back, one or two fronts, and sleeves), I would probably go bottom up. I would draw the diagrams the way I wanted to knit, work out the measurements, calculate the stitches and rows according to my swatch and take it from there.
I don't use Designknit or any other computer program, so perhaps this answer is completely useless.
I wish you good luck in any case and more useful answers from more experienced machine knitters who may understand the problem better.
