Bögel's patent "relates to a knitting-machine for making plain knit fabric of any number of stitches. It is of very simple construction, works almost without any noise, and can be easily taken apart, for the purposes of removing or replacing needles, and for repairing and cleaning the whole machine. Two sets of needles, each working independently of the other, are arranged in the machine, both of which, or either one of them, may be operated at a time, and thus one or two pieces of fabric may be knit at once." (Patent Number 75,353)
