This chapter deals with the fundamentals, as well as the recent developments, in both warp and weft knitting technologies. The knitting equipment, fabric structures, their properties and areas of application have been described in detail. The other areas covered include fabric geometry, process control, and machine and fabric calculations. The recent advances in both warp and weft knitting equipment and fabric structures exhibited at ITMA 2011 in Barcelona, Spain, have been discussed in detail. It has been demonstrated in this chapter that both warp and weft knitting technologies are increasingly being developed and utilised in the manufacture of an extremely wide range of apparel, household, and technical textiles products, and are likely to expand their share of the world markets still further in the future.
