Inlay Shiny Knit

AW2017 collection

Test panel 1

Inlay knitting technique is something between knitting and weaving. It is also called 'Knitweaving'.

Because main yarn go straightly through the knitted base, it can show the character of the main yarn more directly. It is east to choose fancy yarns (shaggy yarns or nep yarns, etc..) for this technique, but what I wanted to achieve was create very simple and smooth texture but fully rich.

Test panel 2

I chose very simple one for the main yarn. After trying the several test panels to compare the balance between main yarn and base knitting to compare the richness, we chose the test panel3 as its balance of the colours is the best and it has the the strength for the scratching at the same time.
