New Video for June
Knitting machines make lace by transferring stitches from one needle to the next, so it's all about the direction. Wouldn't it be cool if you could easily flip an asymmetrical pattern so it went in the other direction? Well, you can. With an electronic machine like one in the video, you push a variation key to reverse the pattern, and you also reverse the position of the main carriage and lace carriage.
With punch card machine, you turn the card over - right to left, not top to bottom - and then you also reverse the positions of the carriages.
