    As a fairly experienced hand knitter, I've been eyeing this machine for a year or two. Finally went for it based on the reviews here. I find it works very well for what it is - an inexpensive, beginners knitting machine. It takes patience, but has worked like a charm with care. You must be detail oriented and follow all directions, but after one day making swatches and playing with the intarsia keyplate, I was able to knit the entire back (with ribbing!) of a sweater for my husband in one afternoon, and the entire front (with an intarsia pattern) and one shoulder joined the second day. Ripping back is so easy; especially when you can re-knit 3 rows on 100 needles in less than a minute. No more boring blankets that take me 2 years to finish. You can find better methods of increasing and decreasing on YouTube than are given in the included video - even though the brands are different, the principle is the same. I'm really enjoying this machine and have trouble getting to sleep at night thinking of all the projects I want to make. It's also handy for working the boring parts of a project that you can finish by hand knitting.

    I once was a long time knitter and thrived on expressing my creativity through yarn. Life, time, carpal tunnnel and a little arthritis had prevented that until I spotted this simple and basic machine that can handle the sport and heavier weight yarns I love to work with. I've used different and more complicated machines in the past and so am familiar with the 'machine' concept. If you follow the directions the Caron is very easy to assemble and use. I am now back to enjoying my creative side. I recommend this machine to all those knit lovers who think the pain in their hands isn't worth satisfying their creativity.

    This product is not for folks without patience. It takes a bit to master, but once mastered, a blast to have. I wish the hems were not such flimsy plastic as the smaller hem broke in several places when it slipped out of my hand. Had to order backups but taping is a great cheater too! You must view the DVD and you must read the directions as they are the most helpful. It is easy to use again once you take the time, don't get flustered and master the machine. It will take you no time to master either.

    I have been knitting by hand for years, and after reading the reviews of seasoned knitters, I had some real doubts about this machine. I think it does a great job if you ditch all of your prior knowledge, and approach this as something you don't know anything about. Watch the DVD, read the book, knit the projects in the book, so you can learn the functions each project illustrates, and one of the most important things -- at first start with Caron brand yarn recommended by the machine, so you eliminate problems that may be caused by a poor choice of yarn. If you follow the instructions, your machine would work great. The machine would drop stiches if you don't pull on the thread as you start a new row and then RELEASE the thread after the first few stitches, or if you selected the wrong yarn/knitting plate combination. The Walmart set included an additional knitting plate, an extension, and stitch counter, and it was a great value compared to Joann's even after using a Joann's coupon.

    I am trying to know whether or not the Ultimate Sweater Machine, Delux has smaller size needles to knit lace work such as needles size 2, 3, 4, 5 etc. I will appreciate to know. Thanks.

    • A. No, this is a mid-gauge machine and can't work with yarn lighter than light-worsted (3). There are lace techniques to create very pretty patterns, but lace yarn would not work.

    • A. No. Although I have used crochet thread and cotton yarns to make tablecloths, placemats, dishrags, I had to double the thread. You are looking for a fine gauge or standard guage machine, check out Singer, Silver Reed, or Brother for Fine Guage machines to Standard Guage machines.

    • A. The machine comes with keyplates that are intended to copy the size of 6 different needle sizes. These are placed in the carriage that carries the yarn across the machine. It's absolutely true that you need to look at knitting differently when using the machine--you set up the row ahead of time before running the carriage across, so lace would be done by moving the stitches and needles to set the pattern up first and then knitting across the row. The smaller the keyplate size in the carriage and the smaller the yarn is what would make the delicate fabric of the lace.

    • A. I believe you can purchase different size needles, however on youtube there are illistrations on lace making with the machine just as you purchased it. you can go to the Caron website for needles or any website that offers Caron machine product.

    • A. The needles are one size, but you can knit lace by dropping stitches. You have to change how you think about knitting. The machine comes with a variety of carriage sizes to work with smaller yarns.

    • A. There is a technique that allows you to work "in the round" it's called sew as you go. It takes some practice, but it is possible. Most of the time, items are just sewn together.

    What do i have to do 1 piece and then another poece then crochet together...or can it be made in one piece?
    by specialty2011 1/1/2012

    • A. If you have a big enough machine, possibly two machines combined, you could make it in one go. You could also use a technique called sew as you go that would combine the pieces as you work them.

    • A. It depends on the size of afghan you want to make. If you want to do it all in one piece, i would suggest getting the extention or another machine which would give you a total of 200 needles, minus any extentions.

    • A. You have the use of 100 needles with the basic package, but you can purchase extension which can increase your needles to 130, or purchase a second machine and then hook them together. so you could in theory have it as large as you needed it (I have hooked three machines together for 300 needles (which made a twin size blanket)

    • A. Yes and yes. This Machine comes with a very easy afghan pattern in the book, you braid the peices together. very pretty. Now I am an avid knitter and do not mind piecing "pieces" together, you can do that too. Also you can buy extentions for your machine, which is what I did many moons ago, of course I need a long place to set it.
