We were chatting about plating on the SK the other day on Ravelry, then again to a friend. It seems I'm not the only one who had trouble following the manual. Here is the bottom of the page out of my manual, It doesn't look right. And the important piece of taking the main yarn out and replacing it after, is essential. The trailing yarn MUST be able to slide behind the main yarn in the crescent shaped curve, or IT DOESN'T work. Most annoying. but there it is, twisted yarn before the sinker plate, is no plating.
|Here is the slot where you put the latch/tapet tool|
|And you can see the slot behind where the yarn usually sits.|
And here's the whole page of confusion.
There is a plating accessory for the ribber that fits all standard and fine gauge ribbers.
