New for the LK machines!
Hi Beetle users!
Come here to see different needle arrangements to make specialty stitches. These are the TUCK stitches. I have made these tuck stitches using the new Needle Beetle needle selector and my LK-150 knitting machine. If you don't have a Needle Beetle yet but would like to learn more about it go to: https://www.kriskrafter.com/product-page/needle-beetle-needle-selector
I will be adding to this all the time, so be sure to check back. I will make another page for Slip stitches once I start on those.

For those of you who own one of my new Needle Beetle needle selectors. I have come up with a list of the various 8-stitch needle arrangements that can be used with the Needle Beetle.
Use/combine these arrangements to create your own designs. Some lend themselves better to Tuck, some to slip, lace, or fairisle. * I will be posting a collection of Stitch Patterns that I've come up with soon.
If I have missed some, please let me know and I will add it.
You can link to the PDF file here and download it:
If you don't own a Needle Beetle needle selector but are interested in one. Take a look at my website:
www.kriskrafter.com for more information.
The Needle Beetle works on these machines only:
LK-150, LK-140, LK-100, GK-370
Kriskrafter has an exciting new accessory for the LK-150/140, LK-100, and GK-370 Knitting Machine users.
The Needle Beetle needle selector
The Needle Beetle needle selector selects needles and pushes them in to "D" position so that you can then perform Tuck, Slip, Lace, Fairisle, etc. You hand select the first 8 needles in to the arrangement you want, then push the Needle Beetle across the needle bed and it will select the rest of the needles lickety spilt! Yes, this is similar to some old needle selectors but a couple differences: first mine is all made in the U.S., and secondly the old ones selected the needles only to "C" position - you had to then push them manually to "D" position.
The Needle Beetle will work on the 6.5mm LK-150, LK-140 (and also, I believe the Japanese machine GK-370), as well as the 9mm LK-100. Stay Tuned!
