Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2806102A1] To knit e.g. a one-piece body stocking, a flatbed knitter is used with two straight needle beds (1,2) and two auxiliary needle beds, with needles (3) which are operated by a slide. The second auxiliary needle bed has knocking-over sinkers (4) to hold and transfer the stitch loops between the needles of the same needle beds. To knit e.g. a one-piece body stocking, a flatbed knitter is used with two straight needle beds (1,2) and two auxiliary needle beds, with needles (3) which are operated by a slide. Needles are used which can hold two loose stitches while knitting to a point at the base of the neck/rear opening, alternate needles are released at the opposite needle bed and stitches are held at the other alternate needles with the second auxiliary needle bed to be held with the other stitches. The knitting continues with several rows in a honeycomb stitch at the zone under the neck openings, followed by the final row. The front panel is knitted with arrows to mark the bust. The casting on and casting off is by a simultaneous transfer of a number of stitches. The front and rear panels are joined together at the sides by a pillar stitch, turned inwards, where a selvage loop at one needle bed is transferred to the opposing needle bed after racking the two needles. The front panel is plated at the crotch. The casting off at the armholes and neckline is through shifting of the yarn guide between the fabric press-offs. The second auxiliary needle bed has knocking-over sinkers (4) to hold and transfer the stitch loops between the needles of the same needle beds. The first auxiliary needle bed covers the yarn used to knit the lower section of the front panel while the lower section of the rear panel is being knitted. The second auxiliary needle bed increases/decreases the width of the front and/or rear panels during knitting.
