First attempts at taking video using my digital camera, sorry but no accompanying sound or animation. I know the lighting is poor, the yarn is dark and there is only one view shown and my hands are not that steady, but you get the gist.

Here is one method for working the "Crochet Cast Off" technique for knitting machines with no Gate Pegs. This sample is worked on a WHITE 1502 Double Bed Knitting Machine. Suitable for all models of SUPERBA, SINGER, WHITE, PHILDAR knitting machines made in France. Also PASSAP Vario, Big Phil, PASSAP Goldy, LK-150 and KX-390/400 plastic bed hobby machines.

Unlike Japanese brand knitting machines which have "Sinker Posts" separating each needle, Superba Knitting Machine have "Flow Combs", which are lower in profile and not as pronounced, and some machine knitters find it difficult to wrap their yarn around the Flow Combs when using the Crochet Cast Off method.

• We work around this by bringing empty needles forward before knitting the 2 stitches together on the Latch Tool. It works quite well for all weights of yarn.

• You have to practice this method and finesse how tight you pull with the Latch Tool as you Bind Off. You can form this edge too tightly, so relax and try to create a uniform edge with some give to it.
