About the Master Machine Knitting Program

The Master Machine Knitting Program was developed for Machine Knitting members of The Knitting Guild of America (now The Knitting Guild  Association) (TKGA) to have their knitting evaluated using specific criteria and guidelines. It followed many requests from machine knitters for a chance to improve their skills and expand their expertise in the same manner that was available to hand knitters through the Master Hand Knitting Program. In 1998 the program was modified to address the capabilities and the limitations of the PASSAP DM5, DM80 and the E6000. As a result there are two separate, but equal programs; one for the single bed knitting machines and one for the double-bed PASSAPs.

Knitters in the Master Machine Knitting Programs work through three levels, each building on techniques demonstrated in the previous level. Each level is completed independently, and evaluated by the Master Machine Knitting Committee, before the knitter goes to the next level.

For many years, until 2014, the PASSAP program lacked its third level. That omission has been corrected with the revision of all of the programs. Now  the PASSAP knitter can reach the technical level of all of the original program Master Knitters. Any PASSAP knitters can complete the Masters program by taking this third level.

The programs are designed as an educational process, not a competition or contest. The programs do not explicitly teach knitting skills but rather require you to research the techniques as you work the swatches and projects. The programs emphasize independent and involved learning on the part of the knitter. Brand-new PASSAP knitters who are not familiar with their knitting machines are encourage to consider taking the Basic PASSAP Beginner’s Correspondence Course “Starting Out on the PASSAP” before embarking on the Master’s Program.
