DIFFERENT TYPES OF KNITTING MACHINES


AND ITS FUNCTIONS
A knitting machine is a device used to create knitted fabrics in a semi- or fully
automated fashion.

There are numerous types of knitting machines, ranging from the simple, non-
mechanical, to the highly complex and electronic. All, however, produce various types of
knitted fabrics, usually either flat or tubular, and of varying degrees of complexity.
Pattern stitches can be selected by hand manipulation of the needles, or with push-buttons
and dials, mechanical punch cards, or electronic pattern reading devices and computers.

Types

A few simple devices permit knitting without needles for toy or hobby purposes.
The simplest of these is spool knitting, followed by knitting boards or knitting looms,
which consist of two rows of pins mounted in two parallel rows approximately 0.5 inches
(1.3 cm) apart. Yarn is wound around the pins; various patterns of winding produce
different textured knitting. A needle or special tool is then used to transfer the loops of
yarn from around the pins, either off the pins or to other pins, to produce the knitting.
Knitting boards can produce complex designs. Other semi-mechanical knitting devices
are available.

To produce larger and more complex knitted items such as garments, domestic
and industrial machines, with either flat or circular beds that produce rectangular or
tubular fabrics are needed. Double bed machines have two flat beds facing each other, in
order to produce purl and plain rib fabrics plus a variety of multi patterns. Ribbing
attachments can be added to single bed machines to achieve a similar result.

Late 20th century domestic/studio models typically use up to 200 latch-hook


needles to hold the stitches in fine (the rarest and most expensive), standard or bulky
gauge needle. A carriage or cam box is passed across the bed of needles causing the
needle movements required to produce each next stitch. By means of various selection
methods, e.g. punch cards, particular needles can be caused to travel by alternate
pathways through the cam box. Thus needles will knit or not, and the non-knitted yarn
portions will lie under (slip stitch) or over the needle or be held in the needle hook (tuck
stitch). Needles can be placed in holding position to allow short row shaping. In the most
modern machines, punch cards have been replaced by computer control.

Most of these machines can knit two-colour Fair Isle patterns automatically, and
have machine stitch patterning features such as plating and knit weaving. Plating refers to
knitting with two strands of yarn that are held in such a way that one is in front of the
2

other. Plated effects can be particularly striking in a ribbed fabric. Knit weaving refers to
a technique in which a separate piece of yarn, often heavier than the knitted fabric, is
carried along and caught between stitches to produce an effect like weaving. With knit,
woven fabric, the purl side (usually the wrong side) is the right side of the fabric. With
the addition of a lace carriage, stitches can be transferred from one needle to the next.
The yarn passes through a tensioning mechanism and down through the knit carriage,
which feeds the yarn to the needles as they knit.

Domestic knitting machines use the weft knitting method which produces a fabric
similar to hand knitting. Knitting proceeds more quickly than in hand knitting, where
(usually two) straight needles are held in the hand and each stitch is manipulated
individually across the row. Knitting machines work an entire row of loops in a single
movement.

Comparison to hand knitting

The fabric produced using a knitting machine is of a more even texture than hand-
knitted fabric, which is particularly noticeable on large areas of plain stockinette stitch,
and can be an advantage. Some stitch patterns (e.g., tuck stitches) are much easier to
produce with a knitting machine. Others (e.g. garter stitch) can also be produced with
machine knitting but can take a little longer but still much faster than hand knitting. The
standard gauge 200-needle machine can knit the finest yarns up to a good sport-weight,
while the heavier yarns knit better on a mid-gauge or bulky knitting machine. Machine
knitting saves a considerable amount of time but does require learning to operate the
machines correctly. Most if not all hand knitting patterns can be worked up on a machine,
either identically or in a similar design.
