Silver Reed Knitting Machines


SK 860 Electric Mid-Gauge Attachments

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

Silver Reed's SK 860 is the newest knitting machine and the first of its kind anywhere! With a 6.5mm needle pitch, the SK 860 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.

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 860.

SR 860 Mid-Gauge Ribber

The ribbing attachment will add a whole new dimension to your knitting. It will convert your machine into a true double bed knitter. The ribber doubles your needle bed size by adding a set of purl needles giving you the ability to create a variety of rib stitches 1X1, 2X2, or any configuration you choose. But it doesn't stop there it also gives you the option of creating dimensional fabric by using the tuck and slip stitch designs. Adding interest to the fabric has never been easier

SK 860 Made EZ

by Charlene Shafer

 This book is not intended to replace your instruction manual for the machine or DAK. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the manuals. The manual for this machine was written before the Silver Reed machine used DesignaKnit. This book should bridge that gap.

This wonderful device allows you to use sewing patterns and transfer them to the knitting machine. You simply follow the lines as though you were using a scissors to cut out the fabric.

By selecting a ruler gauged to your stitch gauge you can use any yarn you like. You no longer need to try several test swatches to meet the gauge of a written pattern. Choose the design you like choose the yarn you like and let the Knit Radar do the work of calculation.
