Colour Changer - Jacquards!

I ordered myself another new gadget - a Brother KRC- 900 colour changer, a beast of a machine! This is used to knit double jersey fabrics with patterns on and no floats at the back - in other words jacquard fabrics. It is also a great time saver for knitting stripes and comes with a tension unit for four yarns (ok I may be a little over excited about it). It took a while for me to understand it - having to consult all my books and swear and pout a little, but I finally got it to work on stripes and jacquard - I could not be happier with the results! This means I can make so many things now with a pattern on - scarfs, mittens, socks, booties now will all be float-less in the back of the fabric!
Check out below for a video and images. I didn't do a tutorial video as I'm not sure anyone wants one but if anyone has any questions please feel free to ask.

Looks like I am trying to contact the mother ship - but this is my colour changer in action. You can't really see what's happening but that's the magic of it- at the end you get something like the below.

Look no floats in the back - a total reversible fabric! 
One of my best purchase's from Ebay ever! 


  1. Can't wait to see the designs you come out with

  2. Maybe you could show me how to work it on the chunky machine ? !

  3. Can you send me step by step instructions for my 950i my email laureendickie@hotmail.com

  4. I just got one too. Love it. Tip:
    Keeping your machine in front of a window may cause it to turn yellow.
    May want to cover it when not in use.
