WILLIAM r. STEWART, on NEW YORK,

TOY kNlTTlNe-MACHINE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 289,578, dated December 4, 1883. p

l Application filed June 24. 1880. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Beit known that I, WILLIAM l?. STEWART, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Toy Knitting-Machines, of which the following is a specication.

This invention relates to those means of afsame purpose, wouldbe driven, and on these a worsted thread or yarn would be so crossed or laid andmanipulated with the aid of a pin or other pointed instrumentv as to produce a vvariety of simple fabrics in the shape of flat or round webbings, the projecting heads or rims of the pins or tacks or the outwardlyinclined tops of the wire staples serving in a manner to hold the newly-laid yarn in position, while the space between the two pins or tacks or the two arms of the staple employed as a single knitting-point afforded the neces- V sary facilities for introducing1 the point of the picker under the formed loop in the act of lifting over, as required in picker-knitting.

`The invention comprises novel combinations and relationships of parts, all of which will be hereinafter described, an d then pointed out in the claims. 4

In the accompanying drawings, in which similar letters of reference indicate like parts, Figure l lis a perspective of a device embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical longitudinal section of the same; and Fig. Sis adetailed view of the revolvable plate having attached the knitting-points. Fig. 4 is a further detailed view of the knitting-plate in blank, and Fig. 5 is a more distinct view of the tension-post provided with the guides.

A is a revolvable knitting plate or disk, with the knitting-points C fastened to or raised from itself.

B is a body, to which thetension-post H is attached, and on which the revolvable plate A is made to rest, as shown in Fig. 2.

C C C are knitting-points so shaped and raised as to securely hold the free yarn while i the under-formed loop is being carried over i in the process of knitting, as shown in Fig. 1. The special features of this point consist in its being fashioned'from the same piece of metal holding'it in position,in its having an open or perforated body, which admits of the easy introduction of the picker-point for the purpose of gathering the under-formed loop and lifting it over the newly-laid yarn, and in the forward and peculiar curve of the point, which forms a half-circle, bringing the upper end 4in a direction pointing downward, thus forming a kind of hook, which effectually holds the yarn and renders feasible more difficult forms of loopingrthan would be practicable with a point not having this feature.

H, Fig. l, is the part forming the tensionpost, and provided withthe guides. This is made of wire, preferably. The tension is formed by taking one or more winds of the `yarn around the body of the post before passas a guide for the yarn or other substance taking the form of knitted loops,` and when this is in proper position the yarn is laid directly under the curled tops of the knittingpoints.

E is a larger circle, formed in the same manner, and is designed to guide any fabricas, for instance, a cordwhich itv may be desirable to cover with the looping yarn. When in proper position, this guide is so far above the knitting-points as to feed over them instead of on them, as in the case of guide D. This is necessary'in order` to keep the cord from becoming entangledV with the knittingpoints in turning.

ff, Fig. 1, show the true shape and curve of the knitting-point at the upper end, and J the character of the perforation in the body.

Gg, Fig. l, is a simple form of the picker necessary to and employed with the machine in the process of knitting.

I shows a cord introduced through the guide E in the process of knitting around it. P

shdws the cord dropping below thc machine 1oo` with the yarn covering, and Q shows the yarn as fed without a tension through the guide D.

In operation my invention is to be held lightly in the left hand or fastened to any convenient rest by any suitable eontrvance. The yarn is to be fed from the back of the hand or rest through the guide D, and the cord through the guide E, and the knitting-plate turned to the right with the formation of each new loop, 5

stationary holder or body, substantially as described.

2. Thecombination, with the body B and 2 5 the picker G, of the plate A, provided with the fiat perforated knitting-points C, raised J and fashioned therefrom, substantially as described.

3. The combination, with the body B and 3o the picker G, of the revolvableY plate A, provided with the knitting-points C, having 4flat perforated bodies, and the tips of their upper ends curved outward and downward in the form of a half-circle, substantially as described. 35

4. The combination, with the body B and plate A, provided with the knitting-points C, of the picker G and the tension-post H, provided with the small ring` D and 'the larger ring, E, substantially as described.
