What kind of knitting method has what kind of effect

I often think of inlay knitting as the fleece of a cut-and-sew torener.

A knitting method that looks like a pseudo pile by passing thick and soft threads in the horizontal direction.

Inlay knitting is applied to the back side that comes in contact with the skin, so it feels very good on the skin.

Some brands use cashmere.

If you knit the knit yarn that you usually use with Tenjiku knitting, it will become a normal sweater.

By adding inlay knitting to weft knitting, the shape of the yarn itself can be utilized.

Use straight thread for the base part, and use fancy yarn for the thread to be passed sideways.

By using special lame yarn and molding yarn, a fabric with a rich expression can be created.

However, if you use long fibers or slippery threads as warp and weft, they may get caught and come off.
