The SK280 is a knitting machine with the addition of a punch card unit allowing many complex stitch types for example, Fair Isle, Single Motif, Punch Lace, Tuck, Slip, Weaving and Plating to be knitted faster. It also gives the user, whether a beginner advanced, more scope when creating knitwear.

The Silver Reed SK280 has a full stainless steel metal bed with 200 needles and a needle pitch of 4.5 mm which is ideal for quickly knitting 2ply, 3ply, 4ply and light double knitting yarn. When I say you can knit quickly, we are talking about 50 times faster than hand knitting! And great fun to boot.

Gorgeous pre-punched design cards can each be used in 4 directions. Blank cards are available and can be self punched to give even more versatility when making individual knitwear for gifts or family and friends. Patterns don’t need to be the full width of the garment being knitted; the SK280 can knit a single motif, for example a teddy on a child’s jumper. As skills improve, add-ons such as the ribber attachment and lace carriage, both available separately, enable you to upgrade the machine, as your skills improve.

The SK280 is very well manufactured. Silver Reed’s diligent attention to detail has produced a reliable, smooth running machine that will last many years thanks to newly designed carriage rollers. It’s the little things that count,  like the rubber table protector feet; the lid of the accessory box when attached to the machine bed doubles as handy tray to hold your transfer and latch tools.The row counter can be moved from the left or right side to give more user space.

As you can see from one of our images the range of included accessories is very extensive: Accessory Box , 2 x Clamp, Transfer Tool 1-2, 1-3 and 2-3, Tappet Tool, Needle Pusher, 3 x Spare Needles, Latch Tool, Tapestry Needle, 3 x Cast-on Threads, Cleaning Brush, Oil, 2 x Claw Weight, 4 x Yarn Separator (Spoons), Carriage Fastener, Gauge Scale, 2 x Magic Cams, 2 x Point Cams, Row Counter, Crochet hook as well as the tension post, arm and dual yarn guides.

A comprehensive owner’s manual with colour booklets showing the knitting designs on the 20 punch cards included.

Every thing you need to get knitting as soon as the box is opened is included, all you need is yarn!

    I give 5 stars to Silver Reed knitting machine. I received her after a few days. She is a good trade mark and functional machine. The Silver Reed SK280 is good because she is standard machine with 200 needles. Thank you.

    Love my machine. Does what it says on the box. I now want to get the155, still working on my other half for that. I wish they would bring out an updated knit radar without having to go electronic. 5 star review from one lazy knitter.

    Excellent service - my knitting machine arrived next day as promised, with an impressive warranty and offers of support. It is easy to set up and I've already completed my first scarf. It's a pity that so many of the patterns for machine knitting are very dated e.g. huge 80's shoulders. The instruction manual gives a guide to how to create your own, so I shall, once I'm confident with the basics. A good investment at a good price.

    I ordered my machine and it arrived the following day at my workplace as requested. I am so happy with it and the service I received I really didnt think it would be here before Christmas! The machine is easy to use and I'm learning new things everytime I use it. Thank you for such great customer service. I recommended my friend to you and she has also ordered hers from you I believe.
