Experimenting on the Chunky 9 mm machine

Of late, I have been experimenting with the use of Fingering weight yarn on the Studio Chunky 9mm knitting machine and ribber. I have surprised myself. I used a yarn that I had knit on the Standard gauge , 4.5 mm machine at Dial 8. This time, I set the machine and ribber at a radically different setting.

Full needle rib, MB at 2 and the RB at 7. The result was a variation of “long stitch”.

The scarf itself was pleasant enough, but needed some umph!
