TUCK STITCH

A knitted stitch, which produces a tuck effect by having certain needles carrying more than one loop at a time. The resulting stitch produces an elongated wale (lengthwise ridge) on the front of the fabric, while on the back of the fabric the Tuck Stitch appears as an inverted "V". The stitch can be elongated for two or more courses (rows of loops/stitches), depending on how often the stitch was tucked.

Tuck Stitches are used to create design effects with difference colored yarns, textured looks, or eyelet patterns. Tuck Stitches may also increase the fabrics' weight, width, or thickness. End-uses containing Tuck Stitches include underwear and outerwear.
