A textile structure produced by interlooping one or more ends of yarn or comparable material.
a fabric made by knitting
a fabric produced by intermeshing loops from one or more yarns, fibres, filaments or other elements.
It is different from weaving in that it uses a tying stitch to hold the other yarns together. Knitted fabrics typically stretch more than woven fabrics. Many of the substrates used in laminates are knitted because knitting is usually faster and, and therefore, less expensive than woven fabrics.
fabric which is knitted using plain and pearl stitches and is therefore stretchy (e.g. t-shirt fabric, jersey, fleece, sweat shirt fabric, ribbing)
Knitted fabrics are the third major class of fabric, after woven and nonwoven fabrics.
