When we started carrying the LK-150 knitting machine, lots of people asked us what it was like — although machine knitting has been around for a long time, many yarncrafters have never tried it or seen it, but it’s a wonderful (and fast) way to create.

The yarn being used is LB 1878, a fingering weight 100% wool yarn on cones (making it easier for machine knitters), but you can use any yarn up to category 5 (bulky) on this machine. The LK-150 comes with a user’s manual and all the parts you see here.
AND if you’re in the NYC area, call or visit to find out how you can take lessons on the machine at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio.
