Stitch Transfer

In Picture 36, the transfer of one of the two needle-beds is the half-racking type. The needles are arranged on a front position and cannot work simultaneously; this option is used to transfer the stitches from one bed to another (picture 38).

The stitch transfer can be carried out on contiguous needles of the same bed (picture 39) to obtain special knitting effects.

A special hand tool is used for transferring the stitch manually on another needle.
