Welcome to machine knitting patterns page. This is where you can find links to many free machine knit patterns. I love hand knitting, but there were times when I would pull out my Bond USM (Ultimate Knitting Machine) and knitted up some quick projects. It comes to handy when you want to knit something fast like a scarf or a last minute gift that look like you spend your whole life knitting it. I often dream about owning one of those fancy knitting machines and knit myself every outfit. My closet will be filled with beautiful knitted tops, skirts, scarfs, shawls and socks. And....who knows what else!
Update: 1/31/20 - Now my dream has came true! I own a punch card knitting machine!!! It's not the fanciest but I love it. It's a Taitexma by a Taiwanese company. They are making replica of brother knitting machine (legally, of course). Everything looks just like brother even the manual. I'm sure I will have a fantastic time with my new machine.
Baby sweater - This is a beginner sweater that you can knit on machine. Apparently I'm not the only one that came up with this idea. I added an intarsia of 2 little ducks on the water and a heart. You can find a similar pattern of this baby sweater at; https://marzipanknits.blogspot.com or at; https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/very-easy-beginners-midgauge-machine-knit-baby-sweater
Harvest Shawl - My first machine knitting pattern. Super easy. You cast on 5 sts. and keep increasing 5 sts every 6 rows. Add on border and seam it in a loop. I just love the autumn vibe of the yarn!.

I'm still very new when it comes to machine knit. I've learn a lot from many great machine knitters on youtube.com this year. I love my punch card and want to explore and tried many more things. Below are photos of my works I've done on my standard single bed machine.

I don't have a pattern for machine but I have hand knit raglan without cable pattern . This is my second sweater I made on the machine. I used sweater wizard to help calculate my size to get some idea. I did some adjustments for arm length, sweater length and add cable front.
This is my first shawl I made using knit weave technique and a triangle shawl shape pattern from Knititnow.com when during the shawl contest. I won best use of patterns.

This is a double brim hat I made using a punch card pattern. First work 8 inches and then join the brim then add pattern for 4 inches. Then knit in plain for about 2 more inches. Then k3tog and then pull yarn thought all loop. Seamed sides and done.
I just realized that there is a knitting magazine on the market. It looks expensive though.
