Knitting is a method by which yarn is manipulated to create a textile or fabric ; it is used in many types of garments. Knitting may be done by hand or by machine. Knitting creates stitches : loops of yarn in a row, either flat or in the round tubular. There are usually many active stitches on the knitting needle at one time. Knitted fabric consists of a number of consecutive rows of connected loops that intermesh with the next and previous rows.

As each row is formed, each newly created loop is pulled through one or more loops from the prior row and placed on the gaining needle so that the loops from the prior row can be pulled off the other needle without unraveling. Differences in yarn varying in fibre type, weightuniformity and twistneedle size, and stitch type allow for a variety of knitted fabrics with different properties, including color, texture, thickness, heat retention, water resistance, and integrity.

A small sample of knitwork is known as a swatch. Like weavingknitting is a technique for producing a two-dimensional fabric made from a one-dimensional yarn or thread. In weaving, threads are always straight, running parallel either lengthwise warp threads or crosswise weft threads. By contrast, the yarn in knitted fabrics follows a meandering path a courseforming symmetric loops also called bights symmetrically above and below the mean path of the yarn.

These meandering loops can be easily stretched in different directions giving knit fabrics much more elasticity than woven fabrics. For this reason, knitting was initially developed for garments that must be elastic or stretch in response to the wearer's motions, such as socks and hosiery.

For comparison, woven garments stretch mainly along one or other of a related pair of directions that lie roughly diagonally between the warp and the weft, while contracting in the other direction of the pair stretching and contracting with the biasand are not very elastic, unless they are woven from stretchable material such as spandex.

Knitted garments are often more form-fitting than woven garments, since their elasticity allows them to contour to the body's outline more closely; by contrast, curvature is introduced into most woven garments only with sewn darts, flares, gussets and gores, the seams of which lower the elasticity of the woven fabric still further. Extra curvature can be introduced into knitted garments without seams, as in the heel of a sock; the effect of darts, flares, etc.

Thread used in weaving is usually much finer than the yarn used in knitting, which can give the knitted fabric more bulk and less drape than a woven fabric. If they are not secured, the loops of a knitted course will come undone when their yarn is pulled; this is known as ripping outunravelling knitting, or humorously, frogging because you 'rip it', this sounds like a frog croaking: 'rib-bit'.

Although the new stitch is itself unsecured "active" or "live"it secures the stitch es suspended from it. A sequence of stitches in which each stitch is suspended from the next is called a wale.

During knitting, the active stitches are secured mechanically, either from individual hooks in knitting machines or from a knitting needle or frame in hand-knitting.

There are two major varieties of knitting: weft knitting and warp knitting. In warp knittingthe wales and courses run roughly parallel.

In weft knitting, the entire fabric may be produced from a single yarn, by adding stitches to each wale in turn, moving across the fabric as in a raster scan. By contrast, in warp knitting, one yarn is required for every wale. Since a typical piece of knitted fabric may have hundreds of wales, warp knitting is typically done by machine, whereas weft knitting is done by both hand and machine.

Weft-knit fabrics may also be knit with multiple yarns, usually to produce interesting color patterns. The two most common approaches are intarsia and stranded colorwork. In intarsia, the yarns are used in well-segregated regions, e. In the more complex stranded approach, two or more yarns alternate repeatedly within one row and all the yarns must be carried along the row, as seen in Fair Isle sweaters. Double knitting can produce two separate knitted fabrics simultaneously e.

However, the two fabrics are usually integrated into one, giving it great warmth and excellent drape. In securing the previous stitch in a wale, the next stitch can pass through the previous loop from either below or above.

If the former, the stitch is denoted as a 'knit stitch' or a 'plain stitch;' if the latter, as a 'purl stitch'. The two stitches are related in that a knit stitch seen from one side of the fabric appears as a purl stitch on the other side.

The two types of stitches have a different visual effect; the knit stitches look like 'V's stacked vertically, whereas the purl stitches look like a wavy horizontal line across the fabric.

Individual stitches, or rows of stitches, may be made taller by drawing more yarn into the new loop an elongated stitchwhich is the basis for uneven knitting : a row of tall stitches may alternate with one or more rows of short stitches for an interesting visual effect. Short and tall stitches may also alternate within a row, forming a fish-like oval pattern.

In the simplest of hand-knitted fabrics, every row of stitches are all knit or all purl ; this creates a garter stitch fabric.JavaScript seems to be disabled in your browser.

Its properties are distinct from woven fabric in that it is more flexible and can be more readily constructed into smaller pieces, making it ideal for socks and hats.

There are two basic varieties of knit fabric: weft-knit and warp-knit fabric. Weft-knit fabrics are easier to make and more common. When cut, they will unravel run unless repaired. Warp-knit fabrics are resistant to runs and relatively easy to sew.

In weaving, threads are always straight, running parallel either lengthwise warp threads or crosswise weft threads. By contrast, the yarn in knitted fabrics follows a meandering path a courseforming symmetric loops also called bights symmetrically above and below the mean path of the yarn.

Different stitches and stitch combinations affect the properties of knitted fabric. Individual stitches look differently; knit stitches look like "V"'s stacked vertically, whereas purl stitches look like a wavy horizontal line across the fabric.

Patterns and pictures can be created using colors in knitted fabrics by using stitches as " pixels "; however, such pixels are usually rectangular, rather than square. Individual stitches, or rows of stitches, may be made taller by drawing more yarn into the new loop an elongated stitchwhich is the basis for uneven knitting : a row of tall stitches may alternate with one or more rows of short stitches for an interesting visual effect.

Short and tall stitches may also alternate within a row, forming a fish-like oval pattern. Stitches also affect the physical properties of a fabric.

Stockinette stitch forms a smooth nap. Aran knitting patterns are used to create a bulkier fabric to retain heat. In the simplest knitted fabric pattern, all the stitches are knit or purl; this is known as a garter stitch.

Vertical stripes ribbing are possible by having alternating wales of knit and purl stitches. For example, a common choice is 2x2 ribbing, in which two wales of knit stitches are followed by two wales of purl stitches, etc.

Horizontal striping welting is also possible, by alternating rows of knit and purl stitches. Wales of purl stitches have a tendency to recede, whereas those of knit stitches tend to come forward. Thus, the purl wales in ribbing tend to be invisible, since the neighboring knit wales come forward. Conversely, rows of purl stitches tend to form an embossed ridge relative to a row of knit stitches. This is the basis of shadow knittingin which the appearance of a knitted fabric changes when viewed from different directions.

Both types of plaited stitches give a subtle but interesting visual texture, and tend to draw the fabric inwards, making it stiffer. Plaited stitches are a common method for knitting jewelry from fine metal wire. The side edges are known as the selvages ; the word derives from "self-edges", meaning that the stitches do not need to be secured by anything else.

Many types of selvages have been developed, with different elastic and ornamental properties. Two knitted fabrics can be joined by embroidery-based grafting methods, most commonly the Kitchener stitch.I had done no research before I arrived due to the holiday being organised at the last minute and yet it didn't matter as everything was so well organised.

The documentation (book with all the sights and itinerary) that was provided was perfect and in fact I didn't need to use my lonely planet. The map which you highlighted with my route was my life saver and made driving around so easy. The mobile phone, MBB device and GPS were also useful and made me feel safe and connected the whole trip. I would not hesitate to use your services again and if any of my friends ask me who to use in Iceland I will definitely recommend Nordic Visitor.

Thank you again loved my holiday and it wouldn't have been possible without your great service. Graham and Patricia, Australia South and West in Detail, June 2016 We found Nordic Visitor to be very professional in all aspects of our experience. The attention to detail was outstanding, the correspondence provided before and during our holiday made it easy to enjoy the Iceland experience.

Our decision to visit Iceland was because of other people who had been to Iceland. I am glad we added Iceland to our trip, it was a highlight.

Christine, United States South and West in Detail, June 2016 This was a great way to see Iceland - just rent a car and drive around to the best sites, stopping for surprises along the way. The planning was taken care of for us, but we didn't have to travel with a group. This trip is ideal for independent travelers. The travel and accommodation arrangements made for us could not have worked more smoothly.

Abhishek, India Golden Route of the Nordic Countries, June 2016 Thank you so much for the amazing tour. Matt, United States The Natural Wonders of Iceland, June 2016 The country is absolutely beautiful.

Matt, United States Highlights of Scandinavia by car, June 2016 We had a great experience from the very beginning. Linda, United States The Classic Fjords Route, June 2016 All of the hotels, guest house were SUPERIOR.

I would like to write up the tour company for Trip Advisor, but haven't been able to find out how exactly I can add you to their list of tour operators. You can not imagine how pleased we were with the total experience with Nordic Visitor, and we have recommended you to our friends. The price, the services promised and delivered were top notch. Perfect in all ways.

It was nice not having to worry about buying tickets or reserving hotel rooms for each location. But we didn't feel like we were on a big group tour, we could still wander and explore at our leisure. Andrew and Jennifer, United Kingdom Iceland Full Circle, June 2016 Overall a fantastic holiday, beautiful scenery, wonderful food and very friendly locals.

Heather and Larissa, Australia Express Iceland, May 2016 Only to say thank you for a wonderful holiday and trip of a lifetime. Alitta and Gwennyth, Canada Iceland Full Circle, May 2016 This was an amazing trip. Scott, United States Sweden in a Nutshell, May 2016 Overall, a very nice experience. This was our first time traveling overseas and while it took a little while to adapt to the local customs, once we figured that out we had a great time.

I have to say, Swedish drivers are way more knowledgeable than US drivers. Everyone we met was extremely pleasant, courteous, and more than willing to help us out and explain any questions me had. William and Monica, United States Nordic Odyssey, May 2016 We loved our trip and were very lucky with beautiful weather. During our 4 days in Iceland we experienced Glaciers, Snowmobiling, Waterfalls, Geysirs, Volcanos, Seaside, Off-Road and much much more.

We also visited "The Pearl" which was a wonderful experience. Thank you to everyone who made our holiday such a wonderful memory.

These are my own personal results. My abs are more defined this morning than they were Day 1. I kicked my crazy coffee habit and survived.

I had great morning energy after drinking the Morning Boost. I slept better at night, and my skin looks so bright and fresh. Not to mention my under eye circles lightened up as well.

I would definitely recommend this as I have to several people already. Definitely doing this Teatox again before my wedding Kaitlin TiltonFeeling very satisfied with my results after my 28 day teatox.

I'm generally pretty active but found myself at a standstill trying to improve my image on my own. This was a perfect jumpstart.

I also loved the morning boost and it helped me tremendously being a preschool teacher and keeping my energy up. Hope you find my results as amazing as I do. It really helped with bloating and overall made me feel great. I replaced my coffee with the Morning Boost and it gave me the extra energy I was looking for. Caitlin SaenzJust finished my 28 day teatox yesterday.

I didn't work out or do cardio one day through these 28 days. I truly just let my body rest and detox from all my unhealthy habits. I feel so much better and this was just a kickstart to my fitness journey. Thanks skinny mint tea for starting me off right. I will post a YouTube review later this week. Jodi SpeckI wanted to say thank you for your amazing product. I was shocked at how quickly I could see my results.

As I am growing older I started to realize how tough it is to keep my body in shape and I was beginning to feel like I was permanently bloated.

The TeaTox was so easy, I did not have to change my diet to see results. After two weeks, working out about 3 times a week, I finally have a flat stomach again. I would highly recommend this Teatox. Shall continue with the next packet. Qing GuoAfter 14 days wif SkinnyMint Teatox, my pants are much looser now.Links to: arXiv, form interface, find, stat, 1712, contact, help (Access key information) Cornell University Library We gratefully acknowledge support fromthe Simons Foundation and member institutions arXiv.
