LK 150 Hobby knitter - mid-gauge machine (6.5 mm)(this is for information only - not for sale)

This photo shows the carriage of the LK150

Light weight, compact, easy to store, easy to use, plastic bed machine for which there is no ribber (you can either knit the ribs by hand, or hand tool them on the machine). Has 150 needles and ideally knits yarns about the weight of Patons Astra which is 22 sts to 10cm on 4 mm hand knitting needles (Light 3) double knitting yarn. By use of the tension dial you can knit yarns that are slightly thinner or thicker than this. It knits stocking stitch but with hand manipulation you can knit tuck, slip and fairisle.
Here is a photo of the needle bed, notice the needle butts are colour coded in sets of 10. Also you can see the row counter at the back of the bed and the mast to the left.

People who buy this machine sometimes complain that there are no patterns for it when the beauty of this machine and the LK140 is that it is easy to adapt your handknitting patterns to it. Knitting done on this machine looks like you hand knit it. However, if you need patterns check out
