have a prym version of this as well only difference is prym version had a weight with a hook on it which i found didnt work for me
i do use both with the embellish knit clip weight i have got it to work but do suggest someone else reads the instruction leaflet and then tell you to do
thread through hole in the side where the notch is
and push gently down the middle hole in the middle
use plenty of yarn as its best to have a lot
once yarn is out the bottom place clip weight on it as close to the machine
how to cast on
thread the wool yarn or sewing cotton ( needs be thin) through the hole on the side and over the notch .
2 . wined handle till one needle is opposite the noch
and let yarn catch by hook
wind twice so u have 1 empty hook let hook catch yarn ( should be oppsite e.g. hook 1 and 3 )
turn handle so it pass to next needle but dont put yarn on hook
turn again and let yarn catch thats the first part to casting on
when yarn reaches hook 2 this time it needs to catch .
u may need to pull the weighted end and adjust the weight
turn handle so yarn catches hook 3turn handle and make sure yarn catches hook 4
turn handle and yarn at hook 1 again
cast on part 2 should now be complete and all four hooks now hold yarn the hooks all have flick catches to hold yarn in place.
adjust weight if needed on the yarn hanging out the bottom of the embellish knit .
now just turn the handle,
the prym works the same way except the weight is made different u ether do a loose knot through the weight or tie yarn to the hook on the weight
it does come with yarn which looked to me like 8 ply but i did have trouble so i would use 3 or maybe 4 ply next time.
