  • Patent number: 9675134
    Abstract: Provided is a footwear that excels in productivity and shape retaining property. Footwear is knitted seamlessly with a flat knitting machine having at least a pair of a front and a back needle bed and includes a base knit fabric portion having a mixed section knitted using a first knitting yarn and a second knitting yarn interwoven along the first knitting yarn. The first knitting yarn configuring the mixed section of the footwear is a knitting yarn that is not a heat-fusible yarn, and the second knitting yarn is a heat-fusible yarn having thermal adhesiveness and heat-shrinkable properties. The second knitting yarn preferably has a configuration including a core made from a material that contracts by heat, and a sheath made from a material having a lower fusing point than the core.

  • Patent number: 9644292
    Abstract: There is provided a method for knitting a knitted fabric, different from a conventional method, of forming a suppressing section for suppressing a stretch in the knitting width direction of the knitted fabric in the knitting process of the knitted fabric. One side in a longitudinal direction of needle beds (FB, BB) is assumed as a moving direction (DR). A suppressing section (4) is formed by repeating performing of a bind-off process, in which a first stitch (11) held on one needle bed (FB) is overlapped with a second stitch (12) that is proximate in the moving direction (DR) and a retaining stitch (15) is knitted following in a wale direction of a double stitch (13) of the first stitch (11) and the second stitch (12), and forming of a new base stitch (14) branched from at least one of the first stitch (11) and the second stitch (12).

  • Patent number: 9551096
    Abstract: It is an objective of the present invention to provide a method for knitting a novel knitted fabric in which a stitch direction on an instep side is orthogonal to a stitch direction on a sole side using a flat knitting machine. In a sole section (4), a pickup stitch (8) in which a cover section (3) continues to a left side and a right side of the sole section (4) is formed while moving a stitch row of a BB, which becomes a part of a toe section (2), toward one side (right) in a knitting width direction. In the cover section (3), a three-dimensional cover section (3) is formed by carrying out a narrowing knitting while forming a new stitch following a stitch row of an FB of the toe section (2), a stitch row of an BB of the toe section (2) in which the pickup stitch (8) is formed on a left side (12) and a right side (13) of the sole section (4) while being moved toward the right, and a stitch row of the pickup stitch (8).

  • Patent number: 8434331
    Abstract: Disclosed is a tubular knit glove and method of flatbed knitting. The outward portion of a thumb pouch (7) is knitted while the direction of the wales continues from the end of a four finger body (6) with a reciprocating motion in the direction of the course. Rows of stitches are knit in the center and yarn-overs (8,9) are added on each side as connecting stitches. The inward portion of a thumb pouch (10) forms rows of stitches that link with the yarn-overs (8,9) when knitting back from the end of the outward portion of the thumb pouch (7). After forming a thumb pouch (11), a five finger body (14) is knit as a circularly-knit tube wherein the knitting thread revolves in the course direction completing a glove (1).

  • Publication number: 20120000252
    Abstract: To provide a tubular knitted fabric and a knitting method thereof, which can be knitted without sewing by a flatbed knitting machine, and which is easily fitted to a three dimensional shape of a wearing region without detriment to appearance. As shown in (a), an outward side of thumb pouch 7 is knitted so as to continue in its wale direction to an end portion of a four finger body 6 and while repeats reciprocated knitting in its course direction. In the course direction, a row of stitches is formed in midway and hanging stitches 8, 9 are added on both sides respectively as stitches to be used for linking. In order to make the knitting needles that suspend the hanging stitches 8, 9 different from each other, the position of the row of stitches is shifted in a direction away from a knit end of the four finger body 6.
