Silver Reed SK840 Electronic Knitting Machine
Silver Reed offers 2 models (SK280 and SK840) in the standard gauge line. They are perfect for Lace weight [ 0 ], Fingering [ 1 ] and Sport [ 2 ] Weight yarns (US Knitting Needles#000-#5).
This gauge is extremely popular for finer knits and delicate fabrics. Perfect for suits, skirts, baby garments and beautiful lacey fabrics.
The Silver Reed SK840 knitting machine model is an electronic model that allows the user incredible creativity. Rather than a mechanical feature for patterning, it uses software program DesignaKnit (sold separately). DesignaKnit is loaded onto your computer where you design shapes based on the lengths, widths and shaping you desire, as well as any stitch designs you desire. Via Silver Link 5 Memory Cable, which is connection between your knitting machine and your computer, patterns are downloaded to our carriage and your monitor queues you for when and where your shaping is done.
The machine itself is 44” wide. Please you need an add’l 12” on EACH side to take off/put on the carriage. I recommend a space of at least 20” deep to allow the machine, and it’s tension mast to work property.

If there is any damage that occurred in shipping, please contact your local UPS office. They will come out and check the damage. Angelika’s Yarn Store LLC cannot start the claim.
Angelika’s Yarn Store LLC will not cover any damage to the machine that occurred during use. Angelika strongly recommends that pure cotton, rayon, and silk are not used on the machine. These fibers have no stretch, and the needles will struggle to knit them off. This often leads to the needle’s butts being shoved into the side of the bed and causing dings. These dings will cause future problems. Angelika recommends wool, acrylics and blends. As you learn your machine, wool and cotton blends may be introduced.
Angelika’s Yarn Store LLC also recommends that the carriage is moved back and forth at a sedate speed. Do not drive it back and forth fast. When jams occur, and there is a lot of speed and pressure on the carriage, the bed will be damaged.
Love your machine but start slow and easy during your learning curve.
