Patent-ed Jew. 5. 1915 2 SHEETS -SHEET l L. J QUINN.






Patented J an. 5, 1915.



Application filed April 1 is 10. Serial no. ssaaes,

To all whom it may concern;

Be it known that I, LORAINE J. Qumran citizen of the United States,- residi n-g n Utica, New York, have invented certain Improvements in Knitted Fabric, of which j No. 928,222, and on the seventh day of and tuck stitches in the wales a.

. stitches of course 3 are formed in e ch of f knitted upon machines having four feeds, the fabric shown in Fig. 3.can beknitted September, 1909, No. 933,673,

In the accompanying drawings Flgure l is an exaggerated view of a piece of ribbed.

fabric made in accordance with my invention, and Figs. 2, 3 and 4 are similar views illustrating modifications of the invention.

The fabric shown in Fig. 1 has two successive courses 1 and 2 knitted in ordinary rib stitch, and two following courses 3 and 4 knitted in full Cardigan stitch, that is to say, the yarn in course 3 forms full stitches in the Wales a of the web and tuck stitches in alternating wales I), while the yarn in course 4 forms full stitches in the wales 6 These courses difi'er from the ordinary full Cardigan stitch, however, in having abnormally.

long stitches in course 3 in the wales a, the result being the formation of eyelet holes in the web where these long stitches are drawn, which imparts to theweb a mesh effect somewhat similarto that produced ,in the patented fabrics before ref rred to.

In the web 'shown Fig. 1 th long the wales a and these long stitches are separated by the shorter stitches in the two courses of plain ribbed web but the extent of separation of the long stitches in the di-v rection of the wales can bechanged by varying the number of intervening courses of short stitches, for instance in Fig. 3 only one short stitch intervenes between the ad-' joining long stitchesin each of the wales a. The separation of the long stitches in the di rection of the courses may also be varied by alternating any desired number of wales of plain ribbed web with the wales in which the elongated stitches are formed, as shown for instance in Fig. 2, and instead of form? ing a full Cardigan stitch in courses 3 and 4",- as in Fig.1, a half Cardigan stitch may be formed, as shown in Fig. 3, by alternating one or more courses of ordinary ribbed web KNITTED FABRIC.

Specification of Patent which the Patented Jan. 5, 19%;

as at 1 in said figure, with a course 2' in yarn is tucked upon alternate needles.

knitting the web shown in Fig. 1"

courses 1 and 2 are knitted upon both sets of needles of the machine, as in the ordinary method of producing ribbed fabric, course 3 draws stitches on one set of needles, say the cylinder needles of the machine, and .tucks 'on the otherset or dial needles, while course 4 draws stitches on the dial needles and tucks upon the cylinder needles, the cylinder needles 1n knitting course 3 having abnormal draft so as to form the elongated stitches in the wales a in said course.

In knitting the web shown in Fig. 2, the cylinder needles will, in course 3, draw elongated stitches and the dial needles will tuck throughout a certain width of the Web, say that represented at '1 A and both sets of needles will draw stitches throughout an intervening length of web, say that represented atB, and in knitting course 4 the dial needles will draw stitches and the cylinder' needles will tuck in producing the portion A of the web and both sets of needles will draw stitches in producing the portion Bofthe web.

In the web shown in Fig. 4 two courses of ribbed web 1 and 2, alternate with four courses 3, 4, 5 and 6, knitted in full Cardigan stitch, courses 5 and 6 being the same as I courses 3 and 4, so as to produce two of the elongated stitches in succession on the face of theweb. V v

llhe fabrics shown in Figs. 1 and 2 are.

upon a machine having but two feeds, and

the knitting of the fabric shown in Fig. 4

will require a maehine having six feeds. Iclaim:

s 1. A ribbed knitted web having one or more courses knitted in ordinaryrib stitch more courses knitted in ordinary rib stitch alternating with a plurality of courses,- one tucked in adjoining wales of one face of the web and the other tucked in adjoining wales of the other face of the web, the full stitches of the Web being enlarged to a greater eitent than the full stitches in the Wales of the other face of the Web.

In testimony whereof; I have signed my 15 name to this specification, in the presence of two subscribing wltnesses.
