Abstract

This research focused on the developing the capacity of knitting skill. The comparison of skill between the experts with non-expert was study. The movement of arms was measure to investigate the effect of arm movement on quality of knitting fabric. The experiment was carried out on a video camera to record and analyze the differences of the knitting speed and manner in knitting. The quality of the fabric is measured by a loop of fabric to see the consistency of the loop fabric is important and beautiful fabrics. The result is a procedure used to crochet knitting machines are very different in appearance, knitting and speed. The quality of the fabric is beautiful, similar to the use of a knitting machine knitting. The main difference between them is only part of the seams.
