Multi-Strand Knitting

KnitMesh Technologies manufacturing techniques mean it is possible to knit more than one strand or filament material into a mesh product.

Hand-knitting and simple machine-knitting techniques mean a single strand or filament makes up the entire garment.

By modifying cylinder feeders, spool positions and the materials used, KnitMesh is able to produce a vast array of multi-filament, co-knit, and multi-strand meshes.

Multi-Filament Mesh

Simple machine-knit mesh has a single strand or filament in each knitted loop (as seen in Figure 1). Multi-filament mesh combines several strands of a similar material to form the loops (Figure 2).

Co-Knit Mesh

Co-knit mesh is similar to multi-filament mesh, but this time different materials are combined into each knitted loop (Figure 3).

Multi-Strand Mesh

Multi-strand mesh is similar to single-loop knitting, but in this case the knit layers are phased with different materials. Figure 4 shows a simple ABAB layering structure but more complex phasings are possible (ABAC... etc.)

Multi-Layer Mesh

Mesh is usually knit as a single sock but it is possible to knit one sock of mesh inside another (Figure 5).
