Hi! I had the great fortune of finding a wonderful, working knitting machine (KnitKing brand) today at a garage sale. Unfortunately, it's missing its instruction book and I am at a total loss as to how to use it. Does anyone own a knitting machine or know where I might find some decent basic instructions? I knit by hand and can *kind of* see how it could work...

You can find instructions for practically anything online.  did you try to google it?  I found this by searching for knitking machine manual:
http://www.yarn-store.com/knitting-machine-manuals.html

You might have more luck if you search for specific make and model.  Otherwise I would try a store that sells knitting machines and see if they can order you in a manual.  good luck

You mentioned that it was KnitKing brand. I looked it up and KnitKing apparently was owned by the Brother company (the one that makes sewing machines). Here is where I found that info:

If 4Eyes site doesn't help you, maybe you can contact Brother to see if they have a manual available. You may have to pay for it since you bought it at a yard sale and its no longer under warranty (if there was one). You can check to see if the model number of what you are looking for appears here:

And here is the Brother contact info page:

Good Luck

Thanks so very much for your replies you 2! I've been sleuthing a lot since this post and have found some possible leads via google...Problem is I have no idea what model this machine is (there's no indication) but perhaps Brother/Knitking only made one back in the 50s.

Thanks again!

Hi you need to know the make and model and keep checking on EBAY or just do a search for the knitking make and model...Knitking made machines until the 80's. If you have no luck I can email my machine knit teacher and ask her if she has one. just let me know. amylou

I own a knitting machine though it has been literally years since I used it.  There are some good books out there for knitting machine use and patterns - check your local library.

As to my manual?  I don't think I have it anymore but I will check when I get home from work.

Good luck and knitting on a machine is way gratifying.
