My take on HK to MK translation is based on the premise that I was never good at HK, and since I know a Bond machine does stockinette fabric, which is Knit-Purl-Knit-Purl i figure that depending on the direction you cast on, you can assume that the direction of the carriage moving results in alternating Knit and Purl and you can chart it base on even and odd rows. I have had several MK experts tell me vehemently this is totally wrong and that I would never successfully translate a HK pattern, so read any of my tips at your own risk. ( A few also said that this approach can work.) It's worked for me and I hope to link to the proof of that soon.
