What is the difference between weaving and knitting?

  • -1
Both Knitting and Weaving are popular methods of fabric construction. Knitted fabric is constructed with a single yarn that is formed into interlocking loops by the use of hooked needles.

In weaving, fabric is constructed by the interlacing of two or more sets of yarns. It is an ancient textile art that involves placing two sets of yarn or thread made of fiber called the warp and weft of the loom and turning them into cloth or fabric.
 
Woven cloth can be plain in single color or it can be woven in decorative or artistic designs in multiple colors. Woven fabric is not stretchable unless and until it is specially stretch woven. If a certain amount of stretch is needed, woven fabric must be cut in a diagonal direction or cut on the bias. Even then the fabric is stretched in the direction of diagonal cutting. The advantage of knitted fabric is that it has stretchability which is an important consideration where fit and comfort are concerned. Stretchable knitted fabrics fit the figure but do not bind it. 
 
When sewing knits or wovens, you must keep in mind what the garment is designed for. If it is a loose fitting top or shirt, you can probably make it in either type of fabric. But if it is a pair of stockings or leggings, you will definitely want a knit fabric with enough stretch to make the stockings fit and be comfortable.

Because of insulated air pockets, knitted fabrics also give warmth. At the same time, knitted fabrics are porous and provide "breathing" comfort. This is because body movements cause the loops to expand and contract which pushes air through close fitting garments.

Knitted fabrics are very absorbent, wrinkle resistant and lightweight. However, knitted fabrics tend to shrink more than woven fabrics unless shrink-proofing processes and special techniques are used.

Weaving is worked on a loom. It is comprised of a series of individual threads (called warp threads) that are kept vertically under tension by the loom. The weaver then places horizontal rows of "weft" threads through the warp to make the cloth. The warp and the weft are always perpendicular to each other. to make a piece of material by interlacing threads in close texture on a loom


Knitting is worked on a set of two pointed sticks (knitting needles). A single thread is worked in loops to make a row. Subsequent rows are built on the previous row to make the cloth, still using the same single thread. to weave or connect yarn or wool by a series of interlocking loops and knots made with long eyeless needles, by hand

THE DIFFERANCE BETWEEN WEAVING AND KNITTING IS THAT:::: IN WEAVING WE USE 2 THREADS AND IN KNITTING WE USE ONLY 1 THREAD.
