Jacquard knitting is a technique that allows for the creation of complex patterns and designs in knitwear. It uses a specialized machine, called a jacquard knitting machine, which can produce intricate designs using different colored yarns.
The basic process of jacquard knitting involves the use of a series of punched cards or electronic patterning devices, which control the movement of the needles on the machine. Each card or electronic pattern corresponds to a specific design or pattern. The cards or electronic patterning device are fed into the machine, and the needles are then raised and lowered according to the design on the card, creating the desired pattern in the fabric.
For creating a custom design, the designer will have to create a chart with the design, it is called a jacquard chart, the chart is then transformed into a punch card or electronic device, which the machine reads. The punch card or electronic device is fed into the machine, and the needles are raised and lowered according to the design on the card, resulting in a custom designed knitwear.
Jacquard knitting allows for a high degree of control and precision when creating patterns, which makes it well-suited for creating intricate designs such as logos, images, or even photographs on knitwear.
Creating designs for hoodies and sweaters in Photoshop, we came across the idea to use the look of transparency in Adobe Photoshop or other graphics software as part of the actual knitsweater design.
Transparent areas in photoshop are usually checkered in light grey and white.
Using this background together with a cropped stock image gives a nice transparent effect. Please note the preview is rather low res, the actual knit sweater does look better, although only 4 colors can be used at a time.
You can use or rebuild this effect for your custom sweater design. Upload a partly transparent image in the Online Designer, and flood fill / tile the background with a two color clipart. Set the colors of the clipart to light grey and white.
When aligned correctly, image will merge with the background. If there is a 5th color in the image, replace / fill it with a pattern, and use colors that already exist.
