#Parameters:
min = 1 #needle number of left edge
max = 20 #needle number of right edge
rows = 20 #number of rows to knit
carrier = "3" #carrier name
# ---- set up initial loops and yarn carrier ----
#Bring in carrier:
print(f"in {carrier}")
#On Kniterate machines, carriers start on the left,
#so will start tucking onto needles left-to-right,
#and will be sure to tuck the leftmost needle in the first pass:
for n in range(min, max+1, 1):
#tuck alternating needles, making sure to do the left edge:
if (n - min) % 2 == 0:
print(f"tuck + f{n} {carrier}")
#now, moving right-to-left, tuck the needles that were not tucked on the first pass:
for n in range(max, min-1, -1):
if (n - min) % 2 != 0:
print(f"tuck - f{n} {carrier}")
#knit three plain rows to allow cast-on stitches to relax:
# three isn't set in stone here -- it's just convenient
# for this example code to have the carrier end up on the right.
for n in range(min, max+1, 1):
print(f"knit + f{n} {carrier}")
for n in range(max, min-1, -1):
print(f"knit - f{n} {carrier}")
for n in range(min, max+1, 1):
print(f"knit + f{n} {carrier}")
# ---- single jersey sheet ----
#Create a single-jersey (all knits) sheet by alternating left- and right-going rows of knits:
for r in range(0, rows+1, 1):
if r % 2 == 0:
#left-going row:
for n in range(max, min-1, -1):
print(f"knit - f{n} {carrier}")
else:
#right-going row:
for n in range(min, max+1, 1):
print(f"knit + f{n} {carrier}")
# ---- take carrier out and drop remaining loops ----
#Send carrier back to its parking location:
print(f"out {carrier}")
#drop loops:
for n in range(min, max+1, 1):
print(f"drop f{n}")
