Abstract (en)

[Problem to be solved] There is provided a compound needle of a flatbed knitting machine that can reliably guide a tongue to be sunk in a slider groove at clearing time in which a slider having the tongue formed with two blades is moved back with respect to a needle body. [Solution] In a clearing time, a head portion (14g) of a blade (14) is put in a clearing portion (12i) of a slider groove (12c), and a sloping portion (14f) is pressed with a pressing portion (12f) on the under surface of an overhanging portion (12e). A tongue (14a) is sunk in the slider groove (12c), and a stitch can smoothly move back along a needle shank (12b). An arm (14b) is extended on the rearward beyond the overhanging portion (12e), so that it is possible to form a compound needle (11) by combining a needle body (12) with a slider (13) from above, even though a curving portion (14e) is provided subsequent to the tongue (14a).
