Addi Express Knitting Machine's
With the addi-Express knitting machine you can knit easily and comfortably by just cranking the handle.
For circular or flat pieces of knitting: just turn the handle and feel the knitting-fun of the addi-Express. Even a beginner will quickly get used to it and discover the fun in making articles such scarves, patchwork pullovers, patchwork vests, cuffs for arms and leggings, or even smaller items like egg warmers.
Yarn suitability: many yarns work well, from fine mohair and fancy yarns (without large slubs) to aran and chunky.
Circular knitted items diameter approx. 10 to 15 cm
Plain knitted items approx. 15 - 20 cm wide
Addi Express King Size
Includes: machine with 46 needles, 5 replacement needles, 4 base feet, 2 screw-in clamp hooks for table mounting, mechanical row counter with memory function, large eye needle for casting off or decreasing.
So many more possibilities for larger items - and even more knitting fun! That is what you get with the light-weight addi-Express Kingsize machine. With a larger diameter, you can knit more stitches with just a few turns of the handle. Like the addi-Express, the Kingsize fixes onto a surface with clamps if required, so that it won´t move about. The machine is of plastic construction, but is quite robust, coping well with a range of yarn thicknesses - from fine mohair to chunky. Once set up, just wind the handle and off you go - the row counter will keep track of your progress for you.
This handy larger circular knitter has 46 needles, turning the handle produces tubular knitting of approximately 35cm diameter, alternatively you can knit flat pieces to 45cm by working back and forth. Using the stopper as a spacer you can adjust both the width and shape of your garment piece. Each machine is supplied with a pack of spare needles and a 'stopper'.
The machine will work well with yarns from fine mohair to aran and chunky, BUT yarns with large slubs or very heavy yarns will not be suitable (although eyelash yarns can work well). As a rule of thumb, if you find that the machine resists and does not work with ease it is likely that the yarn is caught and there is a problem!
