Well I made this cardigan for my mum on my "new" Passap DM80 machine. It is not really new but secondhand. Passap machines haven't been made for over 20 years. I brought it off a old lady who no longer had the need for it.
Being a double bed machine it can do ribbing without any hand manipulation so quicker to knit. Also can do a lot of patterns. It also does k:k stitch which is knit stitch on both sides of garment ( no purl side).
