The function of this cable is to synchronize the shaping and colour changing instructions with the carriage movement of a knitting machine; it will not enable you to transfer stitch patterns directly into the knitting machine.

It can be used in conjunction with punchcard machines or electronic machines without a computer interface for pattern input, or any other kind of machine without a pattern reading facility.

The cable functions by updating the Interactive Knitting screen with each row knitted, and will work for all kinds of stitch techniques as well as plain knitting.

The layout of the console of some knitting machines may mean that a special support is required to attach the KnitLink box to the yarn tension mast - if in doubt, please consult Soft Byte Ltd. or your country's importer.

If you have more than one type of knitting machine which you would like to link to a USB port, depending on the manufacturer and model, you may find it more economical and convenient to use the serial cables with a single USB converter - click here to read about this.
