Description

Two knit tubes where the conductive thread is not exposed on back. One jumps under the other via a knit bridge in the back.

Instruction:

Knit jumps are vertical connections for horizontal lines that should not cross each other. They can be done in different lengths and widths. This instruction gives and example for a knit jump connection that runs from right to left and jumps another connection over the full width of the knit. You can adjust the size of the jump to your purposes. The length of the jump should have the same number of rows as tthe knitted part underneath.

1

Cast on the desired size as regular plain stitches on the main bed.

2

Knit a couple of rows with the carriage in basic position A.

3

Set the carriage to position B. With these settings, the carriage will leave the needles in position D inoperative when you keep on knitting.

4

Now push those needles on the main bed in D position that you don't want to use. The needles that remain in B position will be used to knit the horizontal connection separately.

5

Add the conductive yarn to the cotton in the feeder and knit 3 rows.

6

Use the transfer tool to lift the stitches from the first row knitted with conductive yarn and hang them into the last row that was knitted with conductive yarn.

7

Push all needles to D position that you don't need for the knit jump. Leave three or four needles in B position to knit the jump part. Knit 15 rows with the 4 active needles in the middle.

8

Transfer the knit jump part to the ribbing attachment.

9

Now your knit should look something like this: With the knit jump hung up on the ribbing attachment. You don't need the ribbing attachment in an active position, it is only to hold the stitches.

10

Push all the needles to position B. Remove the conductive yarn from the yarn feeder.

11

Set the carriage back in position A. Knit 5 rows.

12

Now comes the connection that the knit jump will jump over. Add the conductive yarn with the cotton and knit 3 rows.

13

Use the transfer tool to lift the first row with conductive yarn to the last row.Remove the conductive yarn and knit 5 rows.

14

Set the carriage in position B. Transfer the 4 loops knitted jump part from the secondary to the main bed, right into the needles that this part was knitted with.

15

Push 16 needles to D position, starting from left to the right.

16

Add the conductive yarn to the cotton in the feeder and knit 3 rows. This is the second part of the connection that jumps over the other connection below.

17

Use the decker needle to lift the stitches from the first row with conductive yarn to the last row with conductive yarn.

18

Set the carriage back in position A. Push all the needles back to position B. Take the conductive yarn out of the yarn feeder.
