Hi Susieknitter, br I have the cams, my 323 was gi... (
Ellie it is so easy using the the magic cams/point cams/yarn separators. It doesn't take you long to set them up on your machine and will save you loads of time in the long run.
I have looked to see if there is a free down load of your machine models manual but cant find one. Having said this really any Knitmaster manual would have the information that you require.
If I can copy the 4 pages that I have I will send them to you in a PM.
Basically you use the punch card in the normal way you would for an all over pattern. Do the initial row from left-right to read the pattern in the same way for all over pattern.
Now with the carriage on the right you put the side levers to the dot and place the magic cams (square blocks with knobs) onto the extension plates at each end of the bed. These are marked left and right and are screwed onto the extension plates.
Put the side levers back to the triangle.
Now get the two point cams (orange/white....marked left and right) and place these at the back of the bed of needles.They have little studs that sit into the needle slots. The right obviously on the right end where you want your motif set the left the other end where the motif ends.
If the motif is 24st wide and you are placing it over the center 0 you will have 12st each side of 0. The cams have the dividing line between the 2 colours (orange/white) this line should be between the 12th and 13th needle either side/end. They are telling the machine that your motif is 24st wide and you want it to start and end at needles 12-0-12.
Now get 2 of the yarn separators (little shovels) count 3 empty needles away from the end of your knitting and place these shovels under the next 3 empty needles at either end open the latches of these needles when you put the shovels under them
. You will have your garment piece/front...3 empty needles pushed back....and then 3 pushed back with the shovels under them.The yarn runs over the little shovels handles.
Now you knit like you would normally do when doing all over Fair Isle but you will only get your motif in the place that you have positioned your point cams.
You could put your Ghostbuster anywhere on the bed following this and you could even do 2 Ghostbusters ...with a gap....if you have 2 more point cams and set them the same way.
Hope that you can understand this and can now have a go at doing it.
