  • 9. II. FUNCTION OF EACH COLOR II. FUNCTION OF EACH COLORNotes for Specifying Color Nos. ( NOTE 1 ) A knit line implies a carriage traverse (one way). ( NOTE 2 ) Do not specify only color no. 0 (miss) in a row. ( NOTE 3 ) The needle beds are automatically set in 1/2 pitch left position to knit single jersey and 1x1 rib and set in the 1/4 pitch left position to knit double jersey with all needle. Racking; 1/4 pitch left position Racking; 1/2 pitch left position ( NOTE 4 ) When knit & cross, knit & stitch move, and knit & transfer are ordered, knit is performed first and then transfer, stitch move and cross follow. If many kinds of racking are required for a course, smaller racking then left racking have priority. ( NOTE 5 ) Links process (transfer) is automatically performed when two adjoining courses are knitted with the different needle beds. Note that some color nos. do not perform links process (transfer). 2 Links process 1 3
  • 10. III. COLOR NO. OF EACH KNIT METHOD III. COLOR NO. OF EACH KNIT METHOD1) Knit C OLOR NO. CONTENTS 1 Front knit (jersey) 2 Back knit (reversed jersey) 3 Front/back knit (double jersey)Point - Links process (transfer) is automatically performed when two adjoining courses are knitted with the different needle beds. - Links process is automatically performed when using front knit or back knit color (e.g. 4, 5, 6, 7 and so on). - Front/back knit (color no. 3) is performed with the needle beds in the 1/4 pitch left position. C OLOR NO. CONTENTS 51 Front knit (without links process) 52 Back knit (without links process)Purpose Use in case of knitting without links process. C OLOR NO. CONTENTS 118 Front knit (non auto-transfer) 119 Back knit (non auto-transfer) - Use the color no. 118 together with the color nos. 32, 52, 82, and 92 on the option line L13, and use the color no. 119 together with the color nos. 31, 51, 81, and 91 on the option line L13 to knit without auto transfer process. (Knit for auto transfer) - Links process is performed with front or back line.2) Tuck C OLOR NO. CONTENTS 11 Front tuck 12 Back tuck 41 Front knit / back tuck (without links process) 42 Front tuck / back knit (without links process) 88 Front/back tuck 171 Front tuck (without links process) 172 Back tuck (without links process) 175 Front/back tuck (without links process)Point - Do not specify the color nos. 11 and 12 or 111 and 112 in the same row. - The color nos. 41, 42 and 88 are performed with the needle beds in 1/4 pitch left position. 4
  • 11. III. COLOR NO. OF EACH KNIT METHOD3) Miss and No Needle Selection C OLOR NO. CONTENTS 0 Miss 16 No needle selectionPoint The function of the color no. 16 is the same as that of the color no. 0. Do not draw only the color no. 0 in a row. Draw color no. 16 instead. C OLOR NO. CONTENTS 116 Front miss (with links process) 117 Back miss (with links process)Point - The color nos. 116 and 117 perform the links process to the front or back line.4) Miss C OLOR NO. CONTENTS 216 Front miss (with links process) independent carrier movement 217 Back miss (with links process) independent carrier movementPurpose You can move the carrier to the desired direction regardless of the carriage direction. For example, to move the carrier away from knitting range, carriage stroke is within the knitting range when selecting independent carrier movement. To move the carrier to the opposite direction of knitting direction, carriage course to move the carrier is unnecessary when selecting independent carrier movement.Point - This color no. cannot be drawn in the same line as other color nos. (except for auto yarn feeder point) - Direction of independent carrier movement does not have relation with carriage direction. - Specify the direction of independent carrier movement on the option line R5. (See the option line R5=6 and 7) - When considering the knitting direction (carriage), independent carrier movement line is not included. - Though the last course of the pattern should be ended with left going, you do not have to include the independent carrier movement line. For the details of independent carrier movement, see “Synchronous/Independent Carrier Movement” described later. 5

  • 13. III. COLOR NO. OF EACH KNIT METHOD6) Cross (cable) The color nos. for a cable pattern are shown below. To make cross, these colors must be specified in pairs. Cross pairs and racking are automatically made up by color nos. and the no. of dots. A) Front stitch cross Cross of front stitches B) Front and back stitch cross Cross of front stitches and back stitches C) Relief knit Knitting technique to make cross easily D) Special technique to cross the cable Knitting technique to insert the relief knit in the middle of cross.A) Front stitch cross C OLOR NO. CONTENTS 4 Normal stitch knit (downside) 5 Normal stitch knit (upside) 14 Front stitch knit (downside) 15 Front stitch knit (upside) 150 Cable joint codePurpose Cross of front stitches.Point - The color nos. 14 and 15 are used for distinction of adjoining cross pairs. - Color no. 1 or 2 can be specified between cross pair colors. - There are 2 types of cross: Right cross (right stitches come upside) and left cross (left stitches come upside). Right cross and left cross can be replaced by exchanging color nos. 4 5 15 14 4 1 5 4 5 5 4 Right cross Left cross - Draw the color no. 150 to connect the color no. 4 and color no. 4 or color no. 5 and color no. 5 with 1x1 knitting. - See the Cross (cable) on “L13: Use Bed Command”. - Drawing cable on front bed side and cable on back bed side - Cross for tubular knitting (Continued on next page) 7

Relief knit is automatically performed when either of the cross pair has 3 or more pitch racking.Point - When a stitch is inserted in the cross, relief knit is automatically performed even for 2 x 2 cable because racking is 3 pitch. - Relief knit is not automatically performed for 2 x 2 cable. When relief knit is required for 2 x 2 cable, a knit line is necessary under color no. 4, and knit cancel command on the line R5 has to be specified in the same row as cross.

Therefore, you do not have to specify. By specifying, however, you can output yarn-out in the desired course.Point - Yarn-in and yarn-out is automatically output in the following conditions: - in the course where the carrier for knitting is used for the first time. (auto yarn in) - in the course where the carrier for knitting is used for the last time. (auto yarn out) - the yarn of the carrier to be held by the yarn holding hook (auto yarn out) - in the course where the yarn end is passed between yarn inserting hook and yarn holding hook (auto yarn in / yarn out) - When using the carrier performing yarn out on purpose again, yarn in command is output automatically in the first course. - Specifying yarn out on purpose means: when passing the yarn end from yarn holding hook to yarn inserting hook, sometimes the yarn is across the yarn of the carrier which stops in the middle of the starting position of knitting depending on the carrier position. In this case, you can perform yarn out to the right end by specifying the yarn out for the carrier which stops in the middle.
