I am wondering if it is possible to obtain really wide knitting by doing tubular knitting but leaving one end open. If so...how :!:

I have just been trying this on my Brother. It shows you how in my ribber manual - you have to keep changing the part settings every two rows.

I am wondering the same thing with my Silver Reed SK840. It does not have part keys as with Brother KM. Please help.

Yes - it is called U style knitting! Works like a charm - follow your ribber manual's instructions. :thumbup: Ann

GrammaAnn, just gone right through my ribber book and this technique is not shown at all but it is good to hear it can be done. Don't have part settings as on Brother so I couldn't work that out. Many thanks though.

The part buttons on a Brother stop it knitting in one direction, like when you do 3 tubular rows at the beginning of rib. Are these called Russel levers on Silvers?

No, you could set the russel levers to knit needles at D position or not.

On Silver reed, Slip is what Brother calls part.

The method is exactly the same as Brother.

You change the knit and slip settings every two rows.

Try You Tube.

I think that you will find it's the front levers that you need to use on a Knitmaster/Silver reed.

Hi. Diana Sullivan used a Brother knitting machine when she made the U-shaped video.

So many of the machine knitting community suggested Diana Sullivan's youtube re-U shaped knitting but once again she was using a brother so I am still not a great deal wiser. I can only thank all who have taken the time to reply.
