The Addi Knitting Machine is best in it's class hands down in the plastic knitting machine market. There are a handful of machines out there that imitate it but they often break or just work poorly. Watch our videos on these well built machines to get a first hand glimpse of what they can do and how they operate. We are the premiere Addi Express and Addi King Size dealership and have dedicated staff to support these machines if a problem arises. Kyle here at the shop has spent countless hours mastering this machine inside and out. Make sure to checkout our instructional videos on the Addi Express and King Size circular knitting machines we have listed on their respective catalog pages on our site. When you purchase your Addi Express or King Size from Paradise rest assured you not only have a lifetime warranty on the machine through us but know the product inside and out and can help you with any questions quickly and easily. These machines are great for many types of projects including hats, scarves, drink cozies and much more. These knitting machines are real stash busters and can crank out knitting projects really fast that look great. Call or email anytime with questions, we love these machines!
The Addi Knitting Machine
We are pleased to include the Addi Express line of circular knitting machines from Germany to our in stock lineup. The smaller Addi Express knitting machine is ideal for small swatches and comes with a ball of yarn to get you started. The original Addi Express knitting machine has twenty-two needles and can be set up and ready to use in minutes. The king-size Addi knitting machine will have you turning out a great selection of projects for family and friends in no time! Although these machines are not sock machines and can't make socks, they are easy to use and surprisingly versatile. The Addi Express knitting machine does take a little time to cast the first few rows and you may find the yarn slips from a needle unless you watch it closely for the first few rows but after that the knitting goes much easier and you can complete a project in far less time than you would with traditional knitting. If you have seen much larger knitting machines and hesitate using a smaller home version, please take time to watch a few videos. The Addi machines are very simple to use!
We have a complete line of videos on You Tube showing the basic features and more videos to come. If you are able to come into our store, we can also help you get started by answering any questions about using the Addi knitting machine. Several of our Paradise family have had fun using the Addi Express knitting machine and can help walk you through the process in person or in any of the instructional videos we have available online. We do have a few tips to help you get started with your Addi knitting machine.
When setting up either of the knitting machines:
- Always use the two clamps included to secure the Addi knitting machine to the table otherwise, the machine will slip and turn while you are weaving.
- Cast your first row of yarn on loosely. If you cast the first row tightly, the machine will make noise and it will be harder to turn the crank to weave your swatch.
- We also recommend using worsted weight yarn or heavier with any of the Addi machines as a lighter weight slips off the needles and you will be frustrated with dropped stitches.
We have several pattern books with designs created especially for use with the Addi knitting machine.These designs are easy to follow and will help you crank out beautiful gift items in no time. The Addi Express knitting machine with forty-six needles is a king -size machine that deserves a king-size pattern book! Check it out for detailed instructions for twenty four fun projects.
These professional knitting machines are designed for years of worry free use and dependability however when needles must be replaced you can find them in stock here at Paradise Fibers. We also carry a tremendous selection of worsted weight and heavier yarns in a rainbow of colors. Textured yarn also provides additional options for any of the projects you have in mind using your knitting machine. Not sure how to get started or what type of yarn may work best?
