Create Knits for all Seasons. Fine Summer Knits to Bulky Winter Wear


The same needle bed as the 860, but with a basic carriage. The SK160 can be upgraded with the addition of an electronic carriage.

Silver Reed SK860

The SK 860 is the newest knitting machine and the first of its kind anywhere! With a 6.5 mm needle pitch, the SK 860 is designed to work with all the yarns typically used by hand knitters. By knitting yarns that fall in the top range for a standard gauge machine and in the lower range for a chunky machine, this machine can deliver the best of both worlds.

SR 860

Ribbing Attachment

Give welts a professional finish and invent infinite combinations of garter stitches with the easily attached ribber. Fitted with a racking mechanism for zig zig patterns, this ribber lets you do your own professional looking Fisherman's or English ribs, circular knitting, pleats and more! Add to the SK160 or SK860.
