Design-A-Knit 8, commonly referred to as DAK 8, is an integrated garment shaping and stitch pattern design program for machine and hand knitting. DAK 8 allows machine knitters to control the movement of every needle on the bed to create personalized stitch patterns, rather than work within the limits of a 24-stitch punch card system or hand manipulating needles. Designing garment shapes is a breeze with built in standardized shapes or original pattern drafting. Once you've created a shape and stitch pattern, DAK 8 will let you integrate the two so that stitch pattern placement is exactly where you want it to be on your garment pieces.
Choose from DAK 8 Standard, Professional or the new Handknit option. Or you can mix and match those options that you need, e.g. Professional Machine and Handknit.
If you have an earlier version of DAK, upgrades are available at a lower price. Contact us at 510-559-9473 for details.
