LK150 Mid-Gauge Knitting Machine

This knitting machine will knit sport, worsted and bulky weight yarns. Two color knitting, texture, lace, cables and ribs are done by manual manipulation. This little workhorse is totally enjoyable! I'm very partial to this model!

I have a list of reasons why the LK150 is such a great machine. Of course, after selling them for 25 years, I would, wouldn't I?

  1. Least expensive machine.
  2. Best quality plastic bed machine today or ever had been made.
  3. Not intimidating. Easy to learn.
  4. Easy to move around the house or take in your RV. I can lift it with one hand.
  5. Needles have ball bearings on them, so the carriage glides really nice across the bed.
  6. Great for children to use due to its ease of use and quality.
  7. Knits the greatest range of yarns that I've seen on any machine, metal or otherwise.
  8. And if you decide you don't like machine knitting, you've only invested $440, and not the nearly $1,000 the other machines are.
  9. And if you decide you don't like machine knitting, the LK150 is the easiest machine to sell due to its weight for shipping and the high demand for these machines.
  10. People who love machine knitting will often buy up into the metal bed line, but never give up their first love, the LK150. That's why you don't see many of these used for sale.

Gosh-a top 10 !!

Silver Reed LK150 Mid-gauge Knitting Machine.

$440 + s/h/i (Shipping Within Continental US) =

The Silver Reed Model LK150, for its simplicity in design and ease of use, will assure you fun and pleasure in your knitting.  You will soon be able to make knitwear with all sorts of interesting patterns for sizes up to the full width of 150 needles, and because it handles a wide range of yarns from Sport (US Needle #4) through worsted weight yarns (US #9) and some heavier, you can make knitwear for the full four seasons of the year.  It is extremely light weight and compact making it easy to carry and easy to store. Its specially designed roller-capped latch needle ensures smooth and quiet operation.

The carriage rests make the needle bed longer.  Use them when knitting over more than 100 needles.

A helpful hint to save you some grief: We have had some problems with dime store/discount worsted weight yarns on this machine. If you plan on using alot of low quality worsted weight yarns, I highly recommend the SK155 machine. These yarns are less pliable than the quality yarns, thus cause greater stress on the carriages. The SK155 is a heavy duty machine, much more suitable for discount afghan yarns, than the LK150.

Intarsia Carriage AG11 for LK150

AG11 Intarsia Carriage

Multi color knitting without floats. Intarsia is a method of knitting with a number of colors, in which a separate length or ball of yarn is used for each area of color (as opposed to different yarns being carried at the back of the work). You lay your colors over the needles you want to be that color and the intarsia carriage will knit those colors. Work from a colored graph, or free form your artwork.

Note:  The plastic caps on the LK100, 140 & 150 needle butts consist of 2 parts.  The tube is called the roller, and the stopper/cap is pushed into from the top.  So if you are ordering the complete plastic piece for the needle butts, be aware that you need to order both the stopper and the roller.  Sometimes the roller get damaged, but often the stoppers are salvageable.
