With 22 needles, the addi Express Machine Pro will knit tubes that are 6" to 8" in circumference (depending on yarn thickness) or flat pieces 6" to 8" wide. You can knit children's socks, adult socks using stretch sock yarn (instructions in Cat Bordhi's Quick Knits on the Addi Express), ponchos, blankets, hats, sweaters and more. Both Quick and Easy Knitting with the addi Express and Turbo Knitting 2 with the addi Express will show you how to make sweaters, shawls, ponchos and more.
I have fallen in love with the possibilites this little dynamo offers. The addi Express Machine is a tool of transformation -- it can take any yarn up to Bulky weight and quickly transform it into beautifully knit fabric. Imagine the leftovers in your stash leaping into the Express Machine and emerging ever so quickly as blankets, socks, ponchos and sweaters. In a few turns of the handle, you can not only create wonderful things from odds and ends, you can create masterpieces with yarns you choose specially for that project. Needless to say, this makes it the tool of the hour for charity knitting!
In fact, it is the tool of the hour for any time you want or need to quickly create gifts that will be used and loved. There is just so much you can do! [see below for some photos]
The addi Express Machine allows you to knit in the round or back and forth. The counter keeps track of the rows, so you can exactly repeat what you have just done. The designs below are all from Quick and Easy Knitting with addi Express.
