Forward-Reverse Stitch

Difference in stitch density between the left
and right sides of the buttonhole (forward

and reverse stitching) are equalized by ad­
justing the reverse-stitch push button. A very

slight rotation of the button will produce a
noticeable change.

1. Make a test buttonhole with the push but­

ton in neutral position (indicator dot
directly below ^ symbol on control


2. If the stitches on the left side of the button­

hole are too open, rotate the push button

clockwise from Its neutral position to In­
crease density of stitching.

3. If the stitches on the right side of the but­

tonhole are too open, rotate the push

button counterclockwise from its neutral
position to Increase density of stitching.

After buttonhole stitching Is completed,

return push button to its neutral position
(Indicator dot directly below ^ symbol on
