Here are some tips to help you start using your new knitting mill -
Drop a long end of yarn down the middle of mill when you start so you can grab it and place tension on the yarn as it moves through the mill. Slowly turn the handle and watch each latch hook open and close, if one doesn't, then stop. Use a fine crocket hook or a yarn needle to open and close the hook that doesn't cooperate. We do recommend starting very slowly and picking up speed gradually. Once you have made enough of a square to hold on to and put tension on it, it gets easier because the tension helps the hooks open and close. You will find that some yarns work better than others. Clip on weights could be used throughout, but I still recommend using your hand at the beginning.
