PREPARATION

CONNECT THE MOTIF KNITTING CAMS L&R Join the ends of the cams and push until you hear a click.

Motif knitting camms cannot be used individually

Before you begin to knit a single motif, take a small

amount of the main yarn (background yarn) and separate it (see picture opposite) to make two small

balls of yarn.

If you have a much finer yarn in the same colour, it is

possible to use this instead.

1) Thread the yarn tension unit as shown in the picture. Thread the second colour yarn through the sub take-up spring (as shown)
