The machine can be paused using the menu dial, or stopped using the emergency button.
When the machine is knitting and you want to pause it, make sure you use the menu dial. Turn the dial until you read 'Pause' in the display and click the button to pause. 'Pause' will halt your progress when knitting, but does not delete it. Select the function again to continue knitting.
We know it can be tempting to press the emergency button to pause the machine. However, not only will the emergency button halt your progress when knitting, but it will also delete it. Pressing the emergency button means you will have to start over from the beginning, so only use it in case of emergency. After solving the emergency, shortly twist the button in the direction of the arrows to turn the machine back on. Take off the knitting and restart your programme from the beginning.
