Necklines for Singlebed Knitting Machines

I wrote a 6 page series of hands-on lessons on neckline finishes for the single bed knitting machine.  Learning the needed skills to produce quality garments is what it’s all about.

I’ve been teaching machine knitting since the early 1980’s, and produced this lesson sheet over time.  My students thought I should publish it so others might benefit from this info.

Square neck, round necks and v necks are included, all for the single bed machine, no ribber required.

These can be knit in standard gauge, mid gauge and bulky, including the Bond frame.
