NOTE: I’m going to post a copy of this in “pages” (see top of right sidebar) so that it’s easily accessible even when I post new entries. The copy is the one that I’ll be updating.
To keep track of my progress in the machine knitting challenge I set for myself, here’s a chart of the standard set of punchcards for a Brother KH-860 and their capabilities:
|Type of pattern:||Punchcard number|
|two-color tuck stitch||x||x||x||x||x||x|
|two-color slip stitch||x||x||x||x||x|
This chart should apply to most Brother punchcard machines as far as I know. An x indicates that that particular card number can be used with the pattern type in that row, and a red x marks combinations I’ve tried so far. Looks like I’ve got a lot of cards to try!
Caveat: this is based on my machine’s manual, but my manual is just a photocopy. Some of the circles are solid and some are just outlines, but I can’t be sure if it’s important. There’s no key, and it could just be poor copy quality.
