THE INFLUENCE OF TUCK STITCHES NUMBER ON THE PROPERTIES OF KNITTED FABRIC
AbstractThe establishing of the influence of the number of took loops in the repeat of combined interloping on the structure`s parameters and the properties of the weft knitted fabric, which is formed by alternating courses of rib 1 + 1 and half-cardigan, is the purpose of the work. All knitted samples have been produced on a 10-gauge flat bed knitting machine from 32x2 tex semi-wool yarn. Methodology. The study of the structure`s parameters and the relaxation characteristics has been carried out according to standard methods after providing the fabrics with conditionally equilibrium state by wet-heat treatment. The influence of the number of tuck loops in the interlooping repeat on the structure`s parameters and properties of weft knitted fabric was determined as a result of this study and mathematical dependences were obtained to
determine the value of indicators. The increasing the number of tuck loops in the repeat leads to an increase in the thickness and, accordingly, the surface density. The values for half cardigan, which loops on one side are tuck, are 25% higher than for rib 1+1.The increasing the number of tuck loops in the repeat leads, as well, to a decrease in the difference in the stretchability in different directions. The full deformation of half cardigan is almost the same both course-wise and walewise and it is 140 ÷ 150%. Scientific novelty. The influence of the number of tuck loops in the repeat on the structure`s parameters and on the stretchability value of weft knitted fabric of a simple combined interlooping, which is formed by the alternation of courses of rib and half
cardigan in different ratios has been established in this work. Practical significance. The established influence of the number of tuck loops in the repeat of a simple combined interlooping on its properties can be used in the creation of new knitwear and the prediction of their performance.
