WOW, what a machine. This is the much improved version using a metal bed and punch card facility. The Silver Reed SK155 is made to knit thicker yarns, anything from DK up to the most chunky of wool's. It opens out the options to use many of the exquisite hand knitting yarns that are available at the moment, the only thing to remember is that if you using hand knitting yarns, they will need to be wound on to a cone before use...the reason is simple… the SK155 will knit very-very quickly!

With the added benefit of having the punchcard system, now the user has many automatic stitch options...you can even punch your own custom pattern cards, insert them into the punchcard reader and hey-presto your very own fair Isle jumper designs.

Using DK for example, the SK155 chunky knitter can knit Tuck Stitch, Slip Stitch and Lace using punch card patterns.

The bed has 110 needles each set at 9mm apart. Using super extra thick yarns, it is possible to use every other needle to create individual fashioned garments, cushion covers or throws.

It is very well designed and packs away in a metal case, taking up very little space. The overall length is 112 cm or 44"

Once unpacked from the neat cover, there's not really a lot of setting up before knitting can start. As with all knitting machines, one would need to use table clamps, which are included, to position the machine on a suitable table. Then erect the yarn post and top tension arms, unpack your accessories which are stored in a large plastic container...each accessory has it’s individual place and off you go.

The SK155 oozes quality and I’m sure will give you many happy hours of maybe knitting gifts for friends and family. Infact I have made a load of jumpers and cushion covers already using mohair and cotton ribbon yarns.

    Fabulous Service, quick delivery, such a beautiful knitting machine, it’s great to be able to use chunkier Yarns. Really good user manual, (I am sorry but the free dvd really wasn’t much help unless you’re looking to go straight into knitting a pullover)
    The moving of the levers take some getting used to as I didn’t need to move anything with my standard gauge Brother machine but I am so very happy that I have invested in the SK155.
    I have only used punch card no1 so far but it does a wonderful tuck stitch & I look forward to using each of the others as I get more confident.
    One of the best parts of this machine is the built in yarn cutter (it’s the little things that make a difference) and I love the 2 yarn holders on each end of the machine.
    I am totally going to enjoy a very long journey with this machine

    Excellent machine. Nothing flimsy about this one. I love it. The price and the delivery is worthy for 5 stars alone. I have 3 other machines but this one is definitely a winter yarn one
