Warp Knitting | 2 x 1 Stitch

The 2 x 1 stitch differs technically from the 1 x 1 stitch by the under-lapping which is extended about one needle space. The longer under-laps highly influence the fabric properties. The fabric gets less elasticity (gets less stretch) in width and is more dense than the 1 x 1 stitch.
The 2 x 1 stitch can be worked open or closed.
With the same no. of needles, the fabric with the open 2 x 1 stitch is wider than that of the closed 2 x 1 stitch.The yarn consumption is a about 1/4 higher than that of the 1 x 1 stitch.
