Did you know you can create punchcards for your knitting machine with the popular Die cut machines? Cricut, Silhouette, etc?
Imagine - no more tedious punching hole-by-hole. Thank you Carolyn, for sharing this
Use DesignaKnit to create the design and format the pattern into TXT format
that can be used by your diecut machine.
In DesignaKnit, when you print/preview the stitch template, a file named Diecut.txt is saved in your default DAK folder.
This file can then be converted to SVG format using this tool: Punchcard Generator
The generator outputs a file that can be imported into the die cutter software and used to create the punchcard.
There is an active group on Ravelry
about this process
