I just got a Mattel knitting machine at an estate sale. I want to find cool patterns for making things with the tubes or circles that it makes. I have the general instructions, but want to know how to turn the pieces into afghans, scarves, and sweaters. Also can you make socks with it? I already tried Google and Ask but came up empty handed. Anything you have done that would help. Thanks!

Thanks! I appreciate the info you have both provided. Have a blessed Christmas and New Year!
My mother made a beautiful afghan out of the Matell Knitting machine circles. Unfortunately I don't have it anymore as after she died in 2004, I gave it to her namesake grand daughter. Best I remember, she just sewed the circles together. My mother was very good about experimenting with her own designs and doubt that she had any instructions.
Here is a link to a site that has several patterns for you to try:

Merry Christmas and I hope this helps!
