  • Brother KL117 knit leader

    Brother KL117 knit leader

    There is not much information on the Brother KL117 knit leader but it is very similar to the Brother KL116 charting device (so read my article on KL116). The minor difference I identified so far is the color scheme (I’ve seen two different color combos – white/grey and white/light-orange). Judging by the Japanese writing even…

    Brother KL115 knit leader

    There is not much information on the Brother KL115 knit leader but it is very similar to the Brother KL116 charting device (so read my article on KL116). The minor differences I identified so far is that KL115 has no biding wire in its standard set of assesories and the setting plates look a bit…

    Brother KL116 knit leader

    Brother KL116 knit leader is probably the most popular model of a charting device manufactured back in the times when Brother still made knitting machines. It fits a huge majority of Brother knitting machines, from pushbutton KH710 to punchcard KH890 to electronic KH970. It even fits bulky Brother knitting machines, like KH230, KH260 and KH270.…

It comes with all the same assesories, like stitch measure scales inside a cylindrical container, stand-brackets, mylar sheet, etc. Thus, refer to the article…

I could not find a lot of information (even in the manual) about which exactly knitting machines Brother KL111 is compatible with. Judging by the pictures in the manual, it should fit…

    If you do not own a knitting machine with a built-in knit leader, like Brother KH881, KH891, and KH893, and you knit (or would like to) a lot of sweaters and shaped panels, you probably need to consider a knit leader. Brother KL113 is one of the stand-alone models of charting devices, helping you to…

  • Stitch scales for knit leader for Brother KH871, KH881, KH891 and KH893 knitting machines

    Some of my customers reached out to me and asked for knit leader scales for the Brother KH881 and KH891 knitting machines. Those are so hard to find! I did not have any spare ones so I took pictures and emailed to them. More people started asking for those and I decided to put them…
