This website was originally inspired by a post by dancingbarefoot and incorporated into a website started by steelbreeze. We wanted to provide a central resource for machine-knitting patterns and techniques. After all, why should hand-knitters and crocheters get all the fun?!

New to machine knitting? Check out the training, manuals and maintenance pages.

To submit anything or report broken links, please e-mail: stitches (at) needlesofsteel (dot) org (dot) uk. I am happy to host your personal patterns and articles as HTML or as PDFs in perpetuity, free of charge, if you would like to share your expertise but do not have a website or blog. Please get in touch if so! You can also contact me on Ravelry (steelbreeze)

Please note: some patterns are now only accessible via the Wayback machine; pictures or links may no longer work. These links are provided as-is.

Please check back frequently, as this is a work-in-progress!

If this is an issue and you wish for the link to be removed, (a) please secure your stuff online and (b) get in touch with me on email - more than happy to delete links if I am made aware of them.
