Abstract of US2008190147

A knitting method for knitting a tubular knitting fabric having gores of front and back knitted fabric parts which are different in size in the manner that no twisting of loops can be provided at the stage of the completion of the joining of the gores so that the tubular knitted fabric can be knitted up continuously without any need of rotation operation. A position of a reference boundary at the stage of the start of the knitting of the tubular knitted fabric is preset so that even when a boundary of the front and back knitted fabric parts on the joining side is located between the front and back needle beds via rotation operation at the stage of the start of the joining of the tubular knitted fabrics to form the gore therebetween, the reference boundary of the front and back knitted fabric parts on the side opposite to the joining side located at the stage of the completion of the formation of the gore can be located at the same position with respect to the loops on the needle bed located at the end of the knitting width on the non-joining side as it is located at the stage of the start of the knitting of the tubular knitted fabric. This preset position is determined based on the difference in size of the gore and on the rotation of the loops resulting from the difference in size of the gore therebetween. With reference to this preset position of the reference boundary, the front and back knitted fabric parts are knitted from the start of the knitting to a gore forming location, then a boundary thereof on the joining side is located between the front and back needle beds via the rotation operation, and then the gore is formed while the loops on the non-joining side located at the end of the knitting width and held on one needle bed on which the knitted fabric part of the small gore is knitted being transferred to the other needle bed via the rotation operation.
