During the stitch formation cycle (picture 122) the needle bar rises while the fabric is held down by the nose of the sinkers. After being fed by the thread guides, the needles lower while the presser closes their hooks. In the meantime the separation and float sinkers withdraw. The already formed course slips out over the closed hook and a further downward stroke of the needles knocks over the previous stitches forming a new course.
