LK150 Fairisle

PDF Version of Fairisle Instructions

There are four methods of knitting fairisle with the main LK150 carriage given in this PDF. Methods 1, 2 and 4 require two passes by the row counter for every completely knitted row, therefore the row counter will show double the number of rows actually knit. Only Method 3 and the FC6 Fairisle Carriage have only one pass per knitted row. Method 1 requires needles to be selected to D position on every pass while all other methods require needles to be selected once per knitted row.

If using the Brother KX-350, the instructions can be followed as well.

The picture on the left shows the Manual Method and the one on the right shows the Hand-knit Method.
