Learning About : Flat Knitting

I wanted to dig deeper and research how PrimeKnit and Flyknit are created.

In this video, PrimeKnit uppers are created on a Stoll Flat Knitting Machine (CMS530 HP).

By changing the type of fabric, the stitch formation and tuck formation, the upper receivesdifferent zones of compression and comfort.

The ankle sleeve on the Lunar Epic Flynknit has regions of looser knit in the ankle bone area, and a tighter knit elsewhere to provide compression.
