Warp knitted fabrics are divided into two categories: Raschel fabrics and tricot fabrics. Raschel fabrics have a large flower shape, rough surface and many holes, and are mainly used as decorative fabrics. On the other hand, tricot fabric has a fine surface and few colors but has a high output. It is mainly used for covering fabrics and printed fabrics.
In the use of knitted fabrics for clothing design, the stretchability of knitted fabrics can be utilized. Knitted fabrics have good stretchability, and can minimize seams, stitching, etc. designed for styling in model design. Secondly, the fabric itself or the appropriate use of folds can be used to fit the human body curve.
The permeability of knitted fabrics is the insufficiency of edge fabric wrapping the fabric due to the loss of stress in the edge loops of the fabric. It can cause unevenness of the seam of the garment piece or the overall shape effect of the dimensional change of the garment edge and the size of the garment. For this kind of fabric, it can be solved by adding inlaid rib or piping and inlaid adhesive tape at the edge of the garment when designing the template.
Knitted fabrics differ from woven fabrics in style and properties. Due to the disintegration of individual knitted fabrics, it is necessary to pay attention to some exaggerated methods in the design and production of the template and try not to design darts, cutting lines, and splicing seams too much, so as to prevent the disintegration and affect the wearing of the clothing. In order to improve the sex, simple and soft lines and the soft and fit style of knitwear should be used.
