Knitting is a technique to turn thread or yarn into a piece of cloth. Knitted fabric consists of horizontal parallel courses of yarn which is different from woven cloth. The courses of threads or yarn are joined to each other by interlocking loops in which a short loop of one course of yarn or thread is wrapped over another course.
Knitting is a process of fabric forming by the
intermeshing the loops of yarns. When one loop is drawn through another, loops
are formed in horizontal or vertical direction.
There are two of knitting-
Weft Knitting is a method of forming a fabric in
which the loops are made in horizontal way from a single yarn and intermeshing
of loops take place in a circular or flat form on across wise basis.
Warp Knitting :
Warp Knitting is a method of forming a fabric in which the loops are made in vertical way along the length of the fabric from each warp yarns and intermeshing of loops take place in a flat form of length wise basis.
