Brother Profile 583

I personally did not have a chance yet to work on this machine.

It, however, is very similar to another 8-pushbutton knitting machine: Brother Profile 585.

These are the pictures posted from the web with the permission of the original photographer.

Other Brother standard-gauge 8-push button knitting machines are KH552, KH560, KH561, KH581, Profile 583, Profile 585, KH587, KH588, and Genie KH710. They all work very similarly and you can refer to the corresponding articles.

If you like this type of patterning mechanics but would like versatility, check out the Brother KH800 knitting machine: it has the same ratchet-based needle selection mechanism but it is actually punch-card based (thus, more unique needle combinations with 12-stitch repeat).

Don’t forget to check out the fun and beginner-friendly projects that can be done easily on any machine.
