addiEi by ADDI - with the little addi-Egg knitting machine you can make an i-cord quickly and easily, just by turning the handle - it’s great fun to work with.
This mechanised French Knitter has 6 needles, producing a narrow tube of knitting.
Yarn suitability: the machine will work well with yarns from 4-ply to DK or aran-weight. 6-ply sock yarn is ideal as the compact twist is also helpful.
AddiEgg is well thought out in every detail, with a precise set PHOTO INSTRUCTIONS HERE

The weight must be used, it pulls the knitting down through the machine as it is produced.
The transparent lid must be placed on the egg so that the yarn runs in straight.
If the machine resists, it does not like the yarn - take care not to put too much tension on the yarn and follow the guidelines regarding suitable yarns.
Adjusting the weight may help softer/thicker yarns to flow better.
When assembling the machine ensure that the crank handle is inserted firmly.
