Best answer: Why is my knitting machine skipping stitches?

If it comes unthreaded or isn’t threaded properly, your machine will drop stitches. If you are doing tuck stitch with most needles tucked, it can’t handle that and will drop stitches. If you are using inappropriate yarn, it can break and drop stitches, or it could be too thick, clog the needles and drop stitches.
