Guide bar nesting

Up to four pattern bars can be 'nested' together so that their guides converge into the same displacement line. They swing as a single guide bar but they are shogged independently, although guides of bars in the same nest cannot cross or approach within two needle spaces of each other (Fig. 28.3).

On the 42-bar lace raschel, thirteen displacement lines are available. The front two are conventional guide bars for knitting the ground, the next may be a conventional bar for draw-threads when knitting trimmings, or it can be one of two nests of two pattern bars, and there are another nine nests each of four bars.
