Step 1: Step 1: Thread the Thing
I have no words that will help you thread this, so here's a nice picture that you can reference. Good luck.
Step 2: Step 2: Align the Needles
Use the Needle Pusher (looks like a comb) to push the needles into the D position as shown.
Step 3: Step 3: Setting the Carriage
The carriage is the piece with the handle that you will thread, apply settings, and run back and forth to produce your offensive apparel.

Russel Levers to || (symbol on right and left sides of the carriage)
Weaving Knobs to ~ (symbol on right and left sides that looks like if a tilde and a yin-yang had a baby. You will know this is in the correct position if both "street sweeper" wheels go from up to down.)

Slide the carriage back to the right side.

Using the Needle Pusher again, push every 2nd needle from the B to D position as shown.

Pull the yarn under the carriage arm and over needles set in the D position. Next, hold the end of the yarn while pulling the carriage across the needles from left to right until it has passed all the needles.
Knit 4 - 5 more rows by pulling carriage across the needles left to right, and right to left.
Finally, set the Weaving Knobs back to O. Continue moving carriage back and forth to knit your
