Figure 13.1 illustrates the notations of some simple single-jersey fabrics, whilst Fig. 13.2 illustrates a loop diagram of hopsack, a single-jersey inlaid fabric.

In order to tie a lay-in yarn into the back of a single-jersey structure, selected needles are raised to tuck height to receive the lay-in yarn at a point in advance of the ground knitting feeder. The needles are then raised to clearing height prior to receiving and knitting the ground yarn.

Lacoste Notation Knitting Structure
Fig. 13.2 Single jersey hopsack structure and notation.

Hopsack is a 1 x 1 inlay whose stability and appearance make it popular as a ladies suiting fabric when knitting staple spun yarns. In order to spread the inlay across the back of the fabric, it is the practice to centre the tuck on a different wale at the next inlay cycle.

Another popular structure is a 2 x 2 inlay with a plain ground course between each ground inlay course. The tuck limbs of the lay-in yarns are crossed by the sinker loops on the technical back, so they tend to grin through onto the technical face, especially as they push the two adjacent wales slightly apart at these points. This problem may be overcome with a plated yarn arrangement as in the case of invisible fleecy, which is, of course, a more expensive fabric to manufacture.
