Description

Traces travel up the warp of the knit structure without contacting across the weft.

Instruction:

1

Cast on a plain knit. Knit about ten rows with the carriage in basic position for Stockinet knitting. Let carriage on the right side.

2

Insert the yarn separator between 4th - 5th - 6th needles on the right side of the working needles. Pay attention that hooks are open.

3

Repeat the same in the left side.

4

The main thread has to always pass over the yarn separator.

5

Thread the conductive yarn through "2" in the carriage.

6

Open the knitting file.

7

Interactive Knitting > Set the knitting technique to "Norweger"

8

Change the carriage settings : Cam Lever goes to Fair Isle position.

9

Synchronize the computer with the carriage and knit the file.

10

Pay attention that the conductive thread (here the red one) goes always under the yarn separator.

11

When it goes up, like shown on the picture below, you have to pull it manually under the yarn separator. Sometimes it is just about pushing the carriage a little bit more out of the working needles.

12

If it is recurrent you can also hold the thread. Because it is not knitting in every rows it can mix up in the carriage.

13

After you have knitted a row with the conductive yarn, connect two loops at the end of the row with the previous row below with conductive yarn, using the decker needle. Always use the alternating side of the row to hang up the stitches.

14

Once you finished knitting and cast off the knitted fabric, you need to cut the floats between the vertical columns and secure the threads.
