March 2024: Hamanaka Garter Stitch & German Knittax Machines


March 2024: Garter Bar and Other Machines

Hamanaka Garter Stitch Machine

Milissa Ellison Dewey gave a great presentation at our March meeting demonstrating the Hamanaka Garter Stitch Machine. This machine appears to have been manufactured in Japan and a manual in Japanese can be found on mkmanuals.com. The machine uses double ended hook needles and produces beautiful garter stitch patterns.


Toward the end of the meeting, in a conversation that wandered from one topic to another, Milissa also discussed the German Knittax machines. She showed here how to use the main bed and ribber carriages, which operate separately.
