Hello, I have a Brother knitting machine ck35 for a long time. I have bought a used one, with idea
to experiment with colours, becouse I love handknitting. But I don`t have a ppd 35.
So I bought although an older Brother machine 894 and a nice lady from another town gave me
some lessons. Now I began to clean my CK35, but not so brilliant as you did. I like your idea of the net
of CK35 owners, because we would certainly have I lot of questions (some of us) and it is beautiful to read
about the experiences with this machine. Maybe I will make one day a computerknitted pattern on my machine.
Thank you for you efforts and wish you a nice week(end)
Nina from Ljubljana, Slovenija
So nice to hear from you. We will keep you updated concerning the ck 35 and when the knitic hack is ready.
Keep on knitting!
I have found some informations about FB 100 Emulator on the net:
Would be possible to help me, as I am without ppd 35?
With best regards and thank you
I checked with Fabienne and she says it might be possible to do it this way but you need to be able to reverse engineer it. She also says it´s easier to wait till the hack is ready which will be pretty soon.
Hello! I have CK35 without ppd35 as well! ))) Any news, guys?
We have hacked the machine and its possible to transfer patterns via the computer but as yet no integrated use of the motor and colour changer.
But exciting news is on it´s way, so watch this blog!
I have not a ppd35, but I have a cartrige. Can you please find out if I can buy a ppd 110 or ppd 120 to use it instead of ppd 35 for ck35?
Thank you for your answer.
With best regards Nina
Sorry, you can´t use anything else than the ppd35 for the ck 35. They´re totally different systems.
I would recommend changing to the ayab hack with the free software. That way you can programm your machine with your computer.
Thank you very much for your answer. I have just read about great team AYAB. I am not so young and I have two left hands, so I hope that I will find out how to order and put the hardware together – computter connection with the knitting machine. Is it possible to make a short film or phototocomic with explanation about that and show it on your webside or on youtube? I am only interested to transfer patterns via the computer, I dont use motor or colour changer. I move the parts on machine by hand…
With best regards

I have just found AYAB tutorial 1 on Vimeo, it is super, but it is only for Brother 910 and 930. I will wait for next video.
Thank you very much.
With best regards
HI I have just purchased a ck 35 and we seem to be going around in circles trying to make sense of the instructions, is there a facebook group dedicated to this machine if so that would be a great help
