About Short Ribber Cast On Combs. For those of you who may not be familiar, ribber cast on combs are used in conjunction with your knitting machine and ribber combination to weight your knitted material so that stitch size stays equal and so that your stitches stay clear of the machine mechanism. A Ribber Cast On Comb is hung under and between the knitting machine main bed and the ribber bed using a fine wire which is threaded thru the knitted material. Holes are provided on one edge of the cast on comb for adding additional weights to your project. We have long and short ribber cast on combs for both 4.5mm and 9.0mm machines.
