Passap Tuckerboard Tuck Stitch Reversible Baby Blanket Afghan Pattern

The opportunities to create reversible textured fabric with a Passap are endless. These samples use the FX lock setting, hand selected pushers, and no pattern card. When pushers are up in working position, the machine knits normally. When pushers are down in rest position, the machine knits fishermans rib. The finished fabric is beautifully patterned on both sides.
