    Just to add some detail to the above post... Gerard Rubio Jipke Lezwijn Katy Grieve

    I first raised this issue with the bind off about a month ago, and thought I had resolved it when I found that it didn’t seem to occur if I added the bind off before adjusting the parameters in the side bar of the app (stitch sizes etc).

    However I am now finding that this doesn’t always work. Yesterday I was trying to make a swatch of rib followed by a fair isle 4 coloured knit, and no matter how I approached this there was always a problem with the bind off. I did find that adding the bind off before the bind on gave a correct bind off configuration, but although the app said this was a valid design it would not compile.

    I also had problems with the “phantom” stitch error, when the app says there is a long float at the beginning of the bind off (transfer row). I have posted about his previously.

    And several times had a bind on that was narrower than the swatch.

    Having discussed this with Tim, we thought that perhaps a Zoom tutorial/trouble shooting session, to which everyone with a machine is invited, might uncover what is causing these glitches. It would seem that some users are not having issues and it would be interesting to find out if this is because they have a different work flow, are using k code rather than the app, or are knitting things with different configurations that don’t cause the bugs.

    I have had a machine for almost 3 months now and have mastered various techniques, but being unable to combine them and get a successful bind on/bind off means that to date I have still not managed to knit anything successfully.

    And to make things even more confusing, it seems that something that works one day will not work another day.

    My machine hasn't arrived just yet, but I would also be interested in attending a zoom meeting regarding software bugs and best practices. It seems like a good idea.

    Hi Cadenzaclothes and Robert Ingemarsson,

    We had a good look at it last week, and I believe Gerard sent on a video discussing the way around this issue with small adjustments - for those with similar problems who would like to see it can be accessed here (to understand the issue of the compiling and validating with the bind off) and here (for bind off on rear bed). I hope the issue was solved and you are able to continue?

    Hi Katy,

    Gerard's work around for the bind off starting at needle 1 works, which is good news. However, no-one has looked at the other bind-off issue, which is still occurring frequently for me -

    Currently the only way I can get around this is to start the design again, copy and pasting the body into another file. When the stitch sizes don't save this adds extra time to the work around, as does having to edit the bind-off roll downs, so not ideal.

    Hello all,

    I am STILL having issues with the error I brought up in the previous post, above, and in other earlier posts too.

    I have mentioned this several times and no-one has replied yet. I am also finding that even when I copy and paste the design into another file then add the start and bind off to it, I still get the same error, making the design I have spent hours creating scrap. This, despite the fact that the design will validate and compile without the bind off added.

    PLEASE can you look at this?

    Hi Cadenzaclothes apologies for missing that question:

    Could you try removing or adding a row? The compiler might be complaining because the feeder is on the right-hand side of your knit when it is told to bind-off. In this situation, the feeder would have to travel to the left-hand side of your knit as the only way to re-position itself for the bind-off, which would create a large float.

    Hi Gerard Rubio - Thank you, that worked!

    Hi All,

    I am trying to knit a sleeve with shaping - just increases on either edge, and initially ran into problems every time I added a bind on - the design would no longer compile. I worked around this by creating a bind on in a separate design then combining the 2 designs in a text document.

    So far so good, until almost at the end, the second colour of my 2 colour design, knitting in reversible jacquard, didn't get knitted any more. I have looked at the k code and cannot work out why. There is no error in the design app. I was wondering if anyone could explain why this might be happening? I have tried knitting it twice with the same result both times.

    Here is the bit of code where it goes wrong, after row 727 -
