Abstract
Knitwear in recent years has gained a significant share of the global fashion market. This is accredited to the acceptability of casual dress and the versatility of the structure range that can be produced on modern knitting machinery. This chapter begins by discussing the process of mechanical loop formation and detailing the key terminology. The middle section focuses directly on the types of knitted fabrics, clearly distinguishing between warp and weft-knitting technologies. The case study details a fashion garment and highlights the importance of considering user requirements prior to embarking on the design process. The chapter closes by identifying future trends and new technological innovations.
