If you want to knit with 6 colours you can use black and white with 4 shades of grey in your design.
Works on single and double bed.

All parts for soldering here:http://ayab-knitting.com/shield-hardware/

For the different models you need differnent plugs which you can buy from the mentioned companies on ayab´s page.

KH 900, CK 35 (currently only pattern control) - Molex 2.00mm Pitch MicroBlade Wire-to-Board Header, Vertical
(also because the cables in the machines are a bit short, you need to make extensions)

After soldering and putting the shield onto the arduino you unplug the old hardware and plug in the new hardware.
Changing back to your old hardware is no problem.
