Sample knit on Brother Convertible ‘Bulky’

XXX OOO XX OOO XX ….OOO XX OOO XXX
You have 3 Working Needles on each end of the piece - extra stitches
on ends are for seaming.
E-Wrap cast on over the In Work (X) needles.
Knit as many rows as you want your ribbing to be high.
First latch-up: Go under 2, grab the
3rd ladder, pull it under and over the 2 stitches. Go under 1
ladder, latch up the 2nd ladder and continue to the top of the
Place stitch onto the center empty (“O”)
needle. Continue doing the same across the work. (L = Latched
This (< >)shows the direction of the purl bar (from the
X) to the empty needle (O).
Go back to the first latched up ladder
and put the purl bar from the closest right “X” stitch
onto the right “O” needle. Put the purl bar from the
closest left “X” stitch onto the left “O”
needle. Continue across the work.
Now all your needles are ‘in work’
and all have stitches. I personally prefer to do the central latchup
first, let the work rest for a couple of minutes and then go back
and fill in the other “O” needles from the purl bars.
You can do it as you go across the work, this way is just easier
Knit rows for remainder of sleeve or whatever
it is you’re making. This works well for leg/ankle warmers
& ski hats.
