linking the separate knit pieces to create the final garment

Linking knitwear involves joining the edges of knitted pieces together using a specialized linking machine.

This process is different from sewing and offers a more seamless and professional finish. Furthermore the seams are stronger and more durable as the stitches are interlocked in a way that mimics the original knitting.

Linking machines are designed specifically for this purpose. These machines have a series of needles that hold the stitches from each piece of knitwear, allowing them to be linked together accurately.

These machines are operated by hand and require a skilled operator to place each stitch onto the needles correctly.

This method is slower but offers a high level of control and precision.

Giulia, Mayra and Puuje use these manual linking machines to create your final garment.

Detailed attention is necessary to maintain the tension and alignment of stitches, especially when working with different yarn types and fabric thicknesses.

Linking knitwear is a crucial technique in the fashion industry, particularly for creating high-quality, durable, and aesthetically pleasing garments. 

It combines the precision of traditional craftsmanship with the efficiency of modern machinery, ensuring that the final product meets the highest standards of quality and comfort.
