Ribber Cast On Comb for Knitting Machine
Knitting Machine Ribber Cast On Comb. 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.

We have ribber combs for both 4.5mm and 9.0mm machines.
