Success! I found the section in my ribber manual that talked about using the ribber punch card to make Punch Pin Tuck. So, I set up my machine and ribber according to the chart. I found a thinner yarn to use and it worked great. My only problem was a bunch of dropped stitches.
I was told to use lots of weight and to keep it consistently near the top edge to avoid any dropped stitches. This was a pain in the rear since I had to reach under the ribber to do this. I got my head on straight about the process when I thought how much time I was saving by keeping the stitches from dropping.
To get the size I wanted (20"X30") I used needles 50-0-50 at tension 2. I knitted 300 rows. I did this on my bulky machine.
