Silver Reed Knitting Machines


SK 160 Manual Mid-Gauge

Knit for All Seasons, from Fine Summer Knits to Bulky Winter Wear

Silver Reed's SK 160 is the newest knitting machine and the first of its kind anywhere! With a 6.5mm needle pitch, the SK 160 is designed to work with all the yarns typically used by hand knitters. By knitting yarns that fall in the top range for a standard gauge machine and in the lower range for a chunky machine, this machine can deliver the best of both worlds.

This Mid Gauge Manual Knitting machine offers the same bed as the SK 860 with a non patterning Intarsia carriage. The SK 160 allows you to start with a basic machine that you will never out grow because it grows with you. Learn the basic operation of the machine then add the optional Electronic Carriage and software when you are ready, to upgrade this machine to a SK 860.

Your imagination is the only limit. This machine knits fingering, sport and worsted weight yarns with ease. Using every other needle you can also knit light bulky weight yarn. Excellent choice for the beautiful novelty fur yarns.

Now you can start the garment in the morning and wear it to dinner in the evening. Just imagine what you can create with your SK 160.
