The knitted loop structure

what is the knitted loop structure

The knitted loop structure may not always be noticeable because of the offer of structural fineness, fabric distortion ,addition pattern threads or the masking effect of finishing process . however,,unless the intermeshing of the loop is securely achieved by the needles receiving new loops of yarn into their hooks before the old loops are ‘cast0off’,and the ground structure is not fractured during finishing or wear, a breakdown or separation of structure will result.

The properties of a knitted structure are largely determined by the interdependence of each stitch to its neighbors on either side and above and below it

Knitted loops are arranged in rows, roughly equivalent to the self and warp of woven structure .These are turned ‘courses’ and ‘Wales’ resprctivldly .
