I punched the card suggested, but I don't think the card I have is compatible with my Studio machine. I had a 1X1 punch card and I lined it up and they just didn't quite match in size and shape. Anyhow the card didn't work. SO, I decided to use the 1X1. It still made the most fricking adorable pumpkin hat.
Since I was knitting at someone else's home I didn't have all my manuals with me and as it always is I needed to make an i-cord and didn't know how to set my machine. I knew it needed to slip in one direction, but I so seldom set my machine to slip anything I need the manual. I did have my computer and all I could find was how to make i-cord on a brother machine. I needed Studio. I came across this handy little video that was perfect and saved the day. I-Cord by Crystal Sutherland. It is a manual way of making i-cord using knitting machine needles. Since I only needed to make a small stem on my hat making i-cord in this manner was still faster than using knitting needles. I hung 3 stitches from the top of my hat and began. To get my rhythm going I just remember to always wind in a clockwise manner.
