I've been experimenting to see the depth of texture I can create in the design app and then knit on the machine. Thought I'd post some of them here. The teal swatch is a combination of ribs and ripples.
The gold wool swatch below is a redesign for the Kniterate of the grey (10 gg) fabric below. It's the same as the cream swatch above. It was my quick workaround for the tuck-knit-same-bed-same-pass limitation. I used a half cardigan setup where tucks and knits would have been on the same bed.
This swatch below was supposed to be a triple hem. I think I'd need to increase the stitch size on a single row of each of the two ripples and steam well to get a sharp hem look. But I do like the fullness of the ripples.
Getting the roll distance right is usually my biggest challenge. Sometimes I hit the first time. Sometimes it takes several tries, but it's getting easier.
