Stitch Formation Cycles

Knitted Fabrics

fabric knitting Knitting is the construction of an elastic, porous fabric, created by interlocking yarns by means of needles.

Regular Twills

fabric weaving Regular twills are those that run in regular order; it is, therefore, simply necessary to know the interlacing of any one end or pick, say the first, of a regular twill in order to show the entire weave on design paper. The interlacings of the first end or pick of any regular twill are conveniently shown by writing numbers above and below a horizontal line; thus, for example,if the first end is up 2 picks, down 3, up 1, and down 2.

Weaving Process

fabric weaving Weaving is the process of making cloth with two components, a warp and a weft, and can be done by very simple techniques on complicated loom.

Fabric Formation

fabric knitting weaving The major methods for fabric manufacture are weaving and knitting. Weaving, or interlacing yarns, is the most common process used to create fabrics.

Needle-bed

fabric knitting weaving The needle-bed of a knitting machine is made up by the needles.

Blended Fabrics

fabric The variety of natural and man made fabrics available today, offers a wide selection of fibres for use.

Angles of twill weave

fabric weaving The angle of twill weave is determined by the amount of shift in the points of interlacing.A one pick one end shift twill weaveis called 45 degree twill.A twill weave which has more than one pick shift and one end shift is called steep twill; if the shift is more than one end and one pick it is called reclining twill.

Major Weaving Patterns

Fabric Weaving

fabric weaving The weaving is a process of formation of fabric with interlacement of two or more sets of yarns using a stable machine called loom. Human beings have started using the woven fabrics since the drawn of history. If we exclude the stone age period, the history of civilization is also, to some extent, the history of weaving. Though primitive civilizations used coarser threads to make fabrics which were crude and coarse, there are references of fine fabrics made from filament of silk in China.
