or zigzag knob back and forth between 0 and 5 or any

other combination of widths. Try setting the stop at 1

a while you will become quite skillful, varying your

designs by the speed of the machine, stitch length and

A. Sew a few stitches at 5 width, then allow knob

to spring back to 0 for a short period. Count, if necess-

ry, to establish a rhythm.

B. Set stop at 2 then move knob slowly between numbers 2 and 5 rather fast.
C. Set stop at 1. Gradually move knob from 1 to 5, allowing it to snap back quickly.
