The hand knitting tool version Which explains how the knitting works really nicely.

The mark one machine Correx37's first machine.

Potentially useful thoughts from Correx37's YouTube comments

  • Wow, thanks for your comment, i am certainly not a nuclear scientist i am just a retired engineer. I am sure you could make one if you put your mind to it. I have used a drawer runner as the main slide.
  • Thanks for your comment I just program a set number of steps as there is very little load on the carriage drive. It will run continuously for a couple of hours with no problems.
  • I am afraid I have no plans I just made it up as I went along, but I am sure if you purchase a pack of machine knitting needles you will be able work out with the aid of the video how it is constructed.
  • Hi, the machine does a basic stockinette stitch, knit one row, purl one row. I hope this is of help.
  • My knitting machines were really just projects to use microcontrollers.
  • I am sorry they are not on the market and I am afraid I could not build one for you, as most of the machine is built from just old bits and pieces I had around my workshop.
  • No problem with machine jamming but it is important that the wool feeds freely from a cone.
  • Hi, it would be difficult to describe how to construct the machine as most of the parts are from scrap products and impossible to buy now.
  • My machine design was never intended to be a practical knitting machine it was simply a microcontroller project I created just for fun showing individual needle movement.
  • QUESTION: This is really awesome, how hard do you think it would be to make a circular one? Also does this knit in both directions or does it knit one way then purl back (to make stockinette)
  • ANSWER: Thanks for the comment - I guess the needle bed would be more difficult to make (home made) but controlling the machine should be no problem. The machine knits in both directions and produces stockinette.
  • I guess it could run a little faster but I would prefer it to be very reliable and not drop stitches.
