LANGUAGETERMShaping segment
DEFINITIONThe shaping segments (fashioning lines) can be defined as the zones where the knitting will be carried out on a variable number of needles, these zones generating the spatial geometry. In this case, two operations must be performed: increasing and decreasing the number of operating needles (widening and narrowing). All stitches are held to be reintroduced and knitted at a later stage.
