It can knit a simple tube in the round, but it has an option for knitting flat pieces back and forth too :)
I think each tube you knit comes out with 18 sts all around, so basically, you need yarn that is on the thicker side.
It's quite addicting to use. And Marc and I plan on making a few softies we can stuff and embroider and hopefully sell some time. No decent photos of an actual product using this though, the yarn that came with the box was a bit dirty:
That yellow tube at the lower right is what I made using the machine.
To use the machine, you just thread the yarn through the green receptacle to the "teeth" and start winding the lever. There is no cast on, so you'll have to manually thread some yarn through the first round or row to prevent it from unravelling. Same goes for casting off.
In other news, I have a couple of photos to share for my current WIPs:
I'm trying to make a wristband here^^. Trying is the word. The tiny stitches and non-stretchy crochet thread are also trying my patience.
Finally using that pretty yarn to make another shawl for myself. A lightweight yet warm one. Seafoam stitch border up there!
I'm gonna be incorporating a variation of the wavy pattern I used for the wavy hat. Man, I wish I were more creative with project names.
