Making Lace on a Bulky


Make a tension swatch to find your rows/stitches per inch and ideal tension for the yarn you choose

Choose a lace punch card; I chose one that only had 2 rows of transfers between the 2 rows of knitting but any lace card will work

  • RC000
  • Cast on your project with the main yarn and knit a row or two ending with Carriage on Left (COL)
  • Change Knob to KC to engage timing belt
  • K 1 row to right to select needles
  • Release punch card
  • *Push both Part buttons in
  • Pull up Row Counter Tripper
  • Hand transfer the selected needles with a one prong transfer tool to the left (you will always transfer the stitches in the direction the carriage will go next)
  • Pull all needles into working position
  • Knit 1 row to the left
  • Hand transfer selected stitches  to the right
  • Put all needles into working position
  • Continue to work the hand transfers like this until you take the carriage across and it does not select any needles
  • Put Row Counter Tripper down
  • Remove part buttons
  • K 2 rows stockinette* -(the needles will select on the last pass of stockinette to begin the process again)
  • Repeat * to * until you have the length you desire
  • I do not remove the yarn from the carriage, but do snug up the yarn a bit in the tension mast to knit the 2 stockinette rows

It seems like a lot of steps to hand do the lace, but you get into a rhythm and it takes the guess work out of the transfers when the selected needles tell you which stitches to transfer.
