Topic: Patterning with punchcards. We’ll cover some of the slightly less common techniques such as single-motif and 2-color tuck. And how to get get going again at the right place in the pattern after you have ripped back a few rows, or need to restart on the second side of a neckline. Similar techniques are used on electronic machines as well.

Beginners are always welcome, there'll be a knitting machine available for newcomers to try out. If you have a machine that you don't know how to use, bring it along and we'll help you get started.

Questions unrelated to the topic of the day are encouraged too. This time we have a question about the Brother electronic machines and the PPD (Pattern Programing Device) so there will be a short demo of that as well, time permitting. A topic that we can cover in more depth at some later meeting.

A $3 donation is requested towards the room and Meetup fees. Guests and first-time attendees are free.

5:30 Setup, socialize, beginner questions. Show up whenever you can, you do not need to arrive exactly on time.
