KNITTING DEVICE.

\npplieation filed August 28, 1922. Serial No. 584,586.

To all whom it may concern.

Be it known that T, WILLIAM J. Goonln,

and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Knitting Devices, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to knitting devices and more especiallyto devices to facilitate knitting by hand. j

The object of my invention is to provide means whereby a knitted fabric may be produced which combines the desirable qualities of a tubular fabric and an integral fabric.

These objects, and other advantageous ends which will be described hereinafter, T attain in the following manner, reference being had to the accompanying drawings in which Figure 1 is a top plan view of a device embodying my invention,

Figure 2 a side elevation of the same,

Figure 3 a vertical section on the line 3.3 of Figure 1,

Figure 4 a vertical section on the line 4% of Figure 2, and

Figures 5 and 6 respectively top plan and side elevation of a modified form of my device.

Referring to the drawings, the numeral 1 designates the body of my device which is preferably made in detachably connected sections 2, 3 and 4. These sections, as shown in Fi re 1, are connected by tapered dove-tail joints 5. The body is provided with a central longitudinal slot 6 V which should have greater length than width. The body is also provided, at its top, with a series of loop-holders 7 surrounding the slot. These loop-holders, in the form shown, consist of staple-formed loops of wire.

In Figures 5 and 6 T have shown another form of the device in which the body of the device is rectangular in form and consists of parallel side members 8 and 9 separated by members 10 to provide an elongated slot 6*. In this form, as in the form shown in Figures 1 to 4, the body is provided with a series of loop-holders 7 which surround the slot.

The intermediate body member 3 may be omitted or the body length may be increased by inserting two or more such members.

The device may be used to produce a variety of stitches and to produce tubular fabric of any desired diameter. One of its highly desirable uses is in the production of a fabric which has the uniform exterior which characterizes tubular fabric but which is in fact an integral fabric of double thickness. This may be produced by forming loops in two adjacent loop-holders upon one side of the slot, then crossing to the other side of the slot, forming loops in two adjacent loop-holders, then recrossing the slot and proceeding as before, or the crossing may be made after loops are formed on one loop-holder or three or more loopholders.

Vfhile T have described my invention as taking'a particular form, it will be understood that the various parts of my invention may be changed without departing from the spirit thereof, and hence I do not limit myself to the precise construction set forth, but consider that I am at liberty to make such changes and alterations as fairly come within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A knitting device including a body provided with an oblong slot and a series of loop holders fixed to the body and surrounding the slot, the body consisting of detachable sections connected by dove-tail joints whereby its length may beincreased or decreased.

2. A knitting device including a body provided with an oblong slot and a series of loop holders fixed to the body and surrounding the slot, the body consisting of detachable sections connected by tapered dove-tail joints whereby its length may be increased or decreased.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification inthe presence of two subscribing witnesses.
