My new SK151 – Empisal Knitmaster Chunky!

Here are pictures of my new Empisal Knitmaster Chunky – there is a ribber too but haven’t set it up yet:

Chunky Ribber SR150
SK151 Chunky Carriage
Chunky Setup
Chunky Knitting
Knitting close-up - hand- purled stitches at each side
It came super-well wrapped and no damage at all!
Needlebed so shiny and new - no rust, no bent beedles!

The chunky baby knits 8, 10 and 12 ply with ease as well as mhoair and chunky specialty yarns.  So pleased!  Will knit  some cable scarves on it and post pics when done.

  1. Hi, do u still have the machine, just to confirme that it is single bedded and not double and price please?

  2. Hi, Dont suppose you could let me have a copy of the manual for this could you. My mother has one of these and my kids want to knit with it but she doesn’t have a manual and as she’s nearly 80 she cant remember how to use it !!

    Regards Dave

    1. Hi Dave,

  3. Hi there,
    I was wondering if you could help me, I have had my chunky knitter in storage for twenty years, finally took it out and cleaned it up but I can not get it to work.
    The manual was damaged so I can not see how to get started. Would you be able to let me have the instructions as to the starting process(the positions of the knobs when starting).

    1. try to find a knitting machine club near where you live. If there isn’t one – try – lots of helpful videos for beginners.

      Good luck!

  4. Hi there
    My mom bought a Empisal SR-150 knitting machine but the Instruction manual is missing. Is it possible to get hold of one and/or copy a book for her? Only the basics. No patterns please.
