Craft Dictionary / Crafters Dictionary: Holding Position or Hold Position

Our featured post from Crafters Dictionary is the Holding Position or Hold Position.

This is the act of putting some needles on the knitting machine into a holding position. Note that the knitting machine needles in holding-position can be set to knit or not to knit when the carriage passes over them.

Holding Position on the knitting machine is different from the non-working position or out of work position.

Holding position can be used in designing or knitting stitch pattern like tuck stitch.

Holding position can be used in shaping knitwear like armhole, neck shaping, shoulder shaping, flared skirt- sideways-knitting, seaming on the knitting machine, pockets, horizontal darts, scallop edges and many more.
