Selection with Sliders or Sinkers

High- and low-butt needles allow limited possibility of operated stitches.

In order to increase the selection opportunities, sliders or sinkers (which can be high-, low- or no-butt) are placed under the needles.

Picture 47 shows further opportunities given by the assembly of sliders or sinkers; a high-, low-or no-butt slider can be mounted under a high-butt needle and the same can be done with a low-butt needle.

Picture 47

The picture shows the use of needles and sliders

By correctly arranging the needle and slider cams it is possible to obtain a great number of effects on the fabric, as a result of the combination of different patterns and colours.

The flat knitting machine has two needle-beds; each needle-bed has two cam-locks, one for needle control and the underlying one for slider control, as shown in Picture 48. Instead, for the knock-over, the cams on the upper cam-lock are sufficient.
