Sentro Knitting Machine: A Comprehensive Guide

beginners. It is a versatile machine that can be used to knit a variety of projects, including hats, scarves, sweaters, blankets, and more.


I got my first one in 2019 and since then, I've made hundreds of items with the Sentro. If you are interested in circular knitting machines but aren't strongly committed to the price tag, I highly recommend this product.


The Sentro is a relatively affordable tool that allows you to create an array of items to give as gifts or stock websites/markets.

Benefits:

  • Knit faster than by hand

Getting started:

To get started using the Sentro Knitting Machine, you will need to cast on stitches. This can be done using the built-in yarn feeder or by hand. Once you have cast on stitches, you can begin knitting.

To knit, simply move the carriage back and forth across the needles. The yarn feeder will automatically feed the yarn as you knit. You can use the counter to track your rows.

When you are finished knitting, you will need to bind off your stitches. This can be done using a variety of methods, such as the knit bind off or the purl bind off.



Tips for using the Sentro Knitting Machine:


Over the years, I've put out some pretty popular tutorials on the machine as the directions that come with it are a little vague. If you're new to the product OR you just got it and don't know where to begin, I recommend you start out with my videos.

  • Use a good quality yarn. This will help to ensure that your stitches are even and consistent.

  • Make sure to tension the yarn properly. If the yarn is too loose, your stitches will be loose. If the yarn is too tight, your stitches will be tight.

  • Be careful not to overtighten the carriage screws. This can damage the machine.

  • If you are having trouble knitting a stitch, try moving the carriage back and forth a few times. This will usually help to loosen the stitch.

  • If you make a mistake, don't worry. It is easy to undo stitches on the Sentro Knitting Machine.
