Silver Reed LK150 Knitting Machine
FREE INSTRUCTIONAL DVD INCLUDED!
Why choose the Silver LK150?
It’s not really a basic Knitting Machine, its more of a manually operated machine that can produce some fantastic knitwear using various thickness of knitting yarn. The LK150 Silver Reed Knitting Machine for the beginner, is a real delight to use. Smooth pushing of the carriage across the bed, thanks to the new slippery bed slides and roller capped needle shanks.
The Silver LK150 Zippy 90 can be used to knit most yarns...even Mohair, DK, 4 ply and multi coloured thick yarns. Just like a sewing machine, you set the yarn tension, or should I say the knitting feel or tightness, by adjusting the numbered dial on the carriage. Don’t worry the instruction book gives a good starting point for different yarn thickness. There's no right or wrong tension, just set it by simply adjusting the dial so the knitting feels soft or firm depending on your preference.
Other knitting machines in the Silver Reed range may be more automated in the way they knit various patterns or stitches, however the Silver Reed LK150 is still very capable of knitting most stitches with ease.
Using the lightweight LK150 you can knit Tuck stitch, Slip stitch, Fair Isle, Garter and Moss stitch, Mock English rib, Lace and Open knitting plus my favourite on this machine, Cable stitch. There is no stopping the user’s custom knitting options, anything from cushions, throws, jumpers, cardigans...imagine having a fashion idea for a colourful, patterned custom top for that special occasion and being able to make it yourself in less than a week.
Accessories included with our LK150 Zippy 90 are more than enough to get you started; even the instruction book explains in text and picture format, usually the images are enough. All you’ll need is wool or knitting yarn.
Also included, edge weights and full bed width weights, row counter, needle pushers 1x1, 2x1, 3x1, 3 x transfer tools, latch tool, 2 x table clamps, spare needles, knitting gauge scale rule, 2 x ravel cords, two way yarn mast, tapestry needle, oil and instruction book.
