Knit (2)

textile fabric created by the gradual bending of individual threads into loops and their threading together to form individual stitches which are connected by this threading. We divide k. into basic groups: a) weft k., where a row is created from one thread which is carried over from a finished row to a new row of stitches. A characteristic of the w. k. is the way of its unravelling, which necessarily proceeds along the rows (from the first upper against the direction of the knit). In this way it is possible to unravel every weft k. into individual threads.
