The application of existing digitally-controlled flat-bed weft knitting to fashion knitwear for the individual body shape of women, particularly those above uk standard sizes

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis

Abstract

The primary aim of this practice based research was to develop, for the first time, a new combination of knitting methods which created knitted garments for larger size women that uniquely did not rely on stretch to fit their body shape. Through working with real women, an innovative capsule collection of custom-fitted knitwear toiles incorporating 3D knitted shape was produced which positively demonstrated the originality, effectiveness and significance of the outcomes.
