Introduce the definition and weaving method of knitted rib fabric

Update:21 Sep
Knitted rib is one of the basic structures of weft knitted fabrics, which is composed of a certain combination of front and back wales. The knitted fabric has great elasticity and extensibility when stretched laterally, so it is often used in inner and outer clothing products that require elasticity, such as stretch shirts, stretch vests, pullover cuffs, necklines and trousers.

There are many composite structures derived from rib structure, mainly including rib air layer structure and dot pattern structure. The rib air layer structure is compounded by the rib structure and the plain stitch structure. This type of tissue has less lateral extension, better dimensional stability, and has the advantages of being thick and sturdy. Dotted weave is composed of incomplete rib weave and incomplete plain stitch weave. According to the arrangement order of the two coils in a complete organization, there are Swiss-style and French-style. The Swiss-style dot pattern has a compact structure, small extensibility and good dimensional stability. The French dot pattern structure has the characteristics of clear coil wale pattern and large width. These two kinds of organizations are widely used in the production of knitted outerwear.​​

Knitted rib fabric is double-sided rib fabric, every other stitch is 1*1 rib, every 2 stitches is 2*2 rib, and one stitch is 2*1 rib, generally 19 Needle .16 Needle .12 Needle Weft Knitting Thread Machine Weaving.
