Notes on a Pingouin TP2 Knitting Machine (number 2)

The gauge is 6 mm and it takes 4 ply with ease and possibly light DK. It’s an easy machine to operate with weights that are specialized to fit into a comb that is held in place by elastic – a clever and innovative design. The Pingouin does plain and purl in a single row and is fascinating to watch – first time I ran the carriage across I could have swore it was going to drop the lot and holes appeared to be forming but you have to remember this machine knits both sides of the carriage at once and is of course one of the rare garter stitch machines.
