What is it?

The addiExpress lets you create easily and fast with 22 needles and an electronic row counter.  Knit circular or plain, at lightning speed - just turn the winder and start the knitting fun. Even a beginner gets used to it quickly and discovers the fun in making various articles such as scarves, patchwork pullovers and vests, cuffs for arms, leggings, and so much more.

What can I do?

Create circular knitted tubes of about three inches in width. Create larger pieces by knitting them in flat panels first and then joining the pieces.  Knit hats, socks, scarves, mittens, gloves, cozies, and more.


Search the Internet for free patterns.  Join or follow online groups to find tutorials, project ideas, patterns, and more.
