My friend Susan just bought a passap DM80 and I teased her that she will have to go out and buy a stitch ditcher. Well, tonight I went back to the passap and tried the lace using the stitch ditcher and this is better than doing lace on a Brother with the lace carriage. It is so easy. My only problem is that my shoulder starts to hurt pushing the carriage with only one hand while the other is pushing the stitch ditcher.
I only used one strand of 224. I did a circular cast on. Then transferred all stitches to the back bed. I selected the needles and the settings are LX/N without back bed pushers. I used TD 5.. on back bed and 2… on front bed. I programmed the pattern on 27- and 27+ but added three stitches on each side that I just wanted the machine to knit. The pattern is 1130 and the technique is 253. I ended up getting 8 rows to the inch and 7.27 stitches to the inch. I would like it if I did not have to steam the scarf afterwards but don’t know what else to do to finish the edges. Once I steamed the edges though, they stayed and did not roll. I want to try a looser tension and a different yarn to see if the edges roll. Too much to crochet around the outer edges for me! Might try to figure out doing a rib on each end so it looks nicer.
