I had a Barbie knitting machine that I used for at least 5 years before I managed to break it with eyelash yarn. *oops*

My daughter & I made tons of stuff... fingerless gloves, hair scrunchies, amulet bags, uberlong scrarves, and it was used at every sleepover she had during that time.  When it broke, my sister found a Singer knitting machine for me. I was really excited about it, but have not yet gotten it to make a tube that will hold together.   It un-knits as it's spinning.  I'd love suggestions!

My singer unstitches the end of the tube but if you know anything about knitting you can pick the stitches up really easy and fix it. It' a  bit of a pain but worth it for a nice finished object. If you hav ea crochet hook it's really easy too.
I can walk you through that if you need me to but you probably know what I mean allready.

You have to watch the hooks like a hawk. Make sure you turn the handle slowly. Are you sure you're holding the machine right? I realized my singer doesn't work when its lying flat in my lap you have to stand it up on a flat surface otherwise it drops stitches.
I also found the softer yarn doesn't work real well. But check your guide that came with the machine as it should say what ply yarn works best.

Mine actually unravels everything.  I've never managed to get the yarn to stay on past two or three rows before it starts working itself off.  We've started from the beginning with the book several times and tried different weight yarns, but to no avail.  I'm starting to wonder if we got a machine that doesn't work.

That would be my next guess if it's doing that.

I got one of those machines this year and the yarn unravels at the bottom and even when I crank it slowly, it sometimes misses stitches. Sad

I had one when I was younger that my mother had passed down to me. It only made tubes but it was so fast and easy even a 4 year old could do it.  I used to make barbie tube dresses. Smiley  The machine was still working last I knew but is now missing.

i just made 2 scarves last night
a stripey one and a snake one
and mine has been working really well



part of the reason peoples are unraveling is the cast on
ive been using a new way to cast on and havent had any problems with the bottom
