Repeat – sock knitting machine.

This week has been all about sock knitting machines. Not only that; all about Swedish sock knitting machines. I have never seen any sock knitting machines in Norway and in two days I see two for sale. Obviously they ended up with me. Bothe came in bits and pieces. I already blogged about the Favorit – a tower like construction.

Here is Perssons Omega – put together by yours truly.


The machine has two yarn feeders and a tension control on each. Looks a bit like bees!


As with the other Swedish knitting machine “Favorit” this one has the brushes. I think their function is to make sure the latches are open all the time.


I love the little bell on the round counter!

  1. Hi Eline,
    my name is Maj and I live in Sweden.
    I found your blog when I was looking online for information on the Omega knitting machine. I just bought one at an auction and it was delivered in a wooden box with all the parts in a pile so now it will be exciting to see if I can assemble it. Your photos will be a great help.
    Unfortunately, the manual was missing and I see from previous comments that several asked for it earlier.
    Do you still have access to it?
    I would be very grateful if you could scan or photograph it and share it with me, I’ll be happy to pay you for the inconvenience.
    I also would like to say that I love your knitting design.
    Have a nice summer!

    With best wishes/ Maj
