Knit with 2 Carriages

Although this isn't a new idea, here's a celebrity knitter who really puts her machines to work!
Utilizing an electronic machine with 2 knitting carriages, actress Karen Allen creates beautiful, colorful knitting. She uses this inventive technique to blend beautiful colorways.


  • Blend variegated yarns to prevent pooling
  • Mix mis-matched dye lots of yarn by knitting random rows of each yarn
  • Stripes without switching yarns on both patterning and non-patterning machines
  • Mix 'n match stitch patterns with sections of plain knitting without programming or punching a card
  • What would you do with 2 carriages?

I would love to try this. Would a Brother 950 carriage work on a 965i?
