Knitting Machine Punch Cards

Postby IanT68 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:59 pm

HI everyone, we just bought our daughter an old knitting machine as she's really getting into the whole knitting thing. It's a "Zippy De-luxe with automatic punch card patterning"
Now then, does anyone know anything about punch cards. How to get hold of more of them (the machine came with quite a few) and are they universal to most machines? Any other info would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

I think the punch cards are not universal to every punch card knitting machine but to most - or many. They are not easy to find now though so if you spot some on ebay or some such, you should snap them up. Here is a site which might help: http://www.needlesofsteel.org.uk/punchcardsets.html
