ONLY RARELY SEEN FOR SALE

All The Tools Listed Below
This machine has a fully computerised pattern system. It has 665 stitch patterns built into the machine, which are shown in the StitchWorld III Pattern Book.
Patterns can be anything up to 200 stitches wide, instead of the maximum 24 stitch repeat width that you get with all punchcard models and even with the KH900 electronic model.
The Brother KH970 Knitting Machine is for the person who wants total knitting pleasure and unrestricted creativity.
This machine consists of a standard gauge needlebed and a CB1 Control Box. The CB1 Control Box has a full graphic back lit LCD which is used to enter all programming information.
It guides you through each program stage step by step and via the LCD display you can select any of the ten software programs.
The CB1 Control Box can be operated on or off the needlebed for ease of programming, so you can take the CB1 Control Box and program it in the comfort of your armchair. It is then simply connected to the needlebed via an interface cable when you are ready to knit. Instructions can then be followed from the LCD screen.
There is a very useful help/advice key, which explains the function of each icon on the LCD screen.
Some of the machine’s features are an electronic row counter, 665 pre-programmed stitch patterns, garment shaping calculation and a memory to store your own created stitch patterns.
The pattern variation program allows you to manipulate your stitch pattern design, whether it be to reverse, mirror image, upside-down, reflection, double width, double length, rotation or negative.
If you also have a ribber, you can turn any single bed fairisle pattern into a double bed jacquard design at the touch of the MC Rib button, to eliminate the floats!
The KH970 lets you combine 3 or 4 colours in a row, with the computer doing the hard job of preparing your pattern to knit.
The KH970 also allows you to combine up to 9 motifs or separate patterns in the same row, giving you the opportunity to create your own special designs.
The machine can be programmed with your own stitch pattern designs, for even more great stitch patterns, by using the input buttons or a PPD Pattern Cartridge.
Garment shapes can be drawn and, by entering the measurements from your tension swatch, shaping instructions are automatically calculated for you.
The Brother KH970 machine has a data port/socket, which you can use to save your own patterns to an inexpensive floppy disk using a Brother FB100 Floppy Disk Drive (not included).
The data port/socket also enables you to link the knitting machine to a PC, using a special DesignaKnit cable (not included in this sale), so that you can use DesignaKnit Software to design your own stitch patterns on your PC and download them to the knitting machine ready to knit.
DesignaKnit Software (not included in this sale) also allows you to design garment shapes which you can knit from your PC screen, as the movement of the KH970 carriage transmits a signal via the DesignaKnit cable to your PC and the DesignaKnit Software will tell you when to shape the garment pieces.
These endless variations of both the 665 built in patterns and your own designs give you an enormous array of beautiful stitch patterns to create any kind of garment you could wish for.
The only thing left to say about this machine is how easy it is to use.
Just select your stitch pattern, enter your garment measurements (it will store garment shapes as well as stitch patterns), follow the instructions on the screen and away you go!
All these things make the Brother KH970 a very versatile and easy to use knitting machine.
This fantastic KH970 Knitting Machine is used, but it is in very good used condition.
So this KH970 Knitting Machine just needs a light oiling and you'll be ready to go!
You will receive all of the following:
Brother KH970 Electronic Knitting Machine standard gauge needlebed with 200 needles and CB1 Controller, which have been cleaned and tested to ensure that this knitting machine is in very good order.

I have been very happy with this Brother KH970 Knitting Machine.
It is my own personal machine, but, as I have very limited time to knit, it has not been used very often.
The machine has always been very carefully stored when not in use.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR OVERSEAS BUYERS This Brother KH970 Electronic Knitting Machine was designed to work with our electrical system here in the UK, which runs at 220/240 volts. If your electrical system runs at any other voltage you will need to buy a step converter which will convert your power supply to 220/240 volts. These are normally inexpensive and readily available from your local electrical store/electrician. Failure to use a step converter may damage this Brother KH970 Electronic Knitting Machine.
