FLOAT JACQUARD (face and back)

In the jacquard knitting process, an extra yarn of a different color is added to the stitches to create a pattern. (The patterns may be isolated to a certain area, or an all-over design.) The pattern develops as one of the colored yarns is purposely miss-knitted to allow one yarn (color) to appear and the face, causing the other yarn (color) to appear as a floater yarn on the back side of the knitted fabric. This is also a modification of fabric plaiting.
