lower than those at the ends. This arrangement
of the prongs permits the removal of the knitted
the. work to be done in anew and e?ective man
ner. It has, among its objects, to provide a new
and e?ective stitch for knitted articles, that may
cloth It from the middle to be made’ more coop
be learned with facility and used with celerity;
and to have a device that will enable such stitch
to be made to produce articles of the forms de
sired, manually or otherwise; and to have the
10 device relatively simple in construction and eco
nomical to manufacture. Other objects will be~
come apparent as the invention is more fully set
The purpose of this invention, in its manually
15 operated form, is to provide a simple device for
eratively with those at the ends, as the stitches
are taken over the prongs in sequence. The 5
prongs are each provided with a semi-circular
groove 5 passing around them horizontally near
the upper portion 4.
The stitch used in this invention is created by
the winding or intertwining of a yarn» thread 10
5, in a 6-like manner around the’prongs, and
all connected with each other as shown at 15.
After the yarn has completed its movement across
the row of prongs provided in the comb, the
twist is continued, as at 2%, and continues on 15
the knitting of a new and effective stitch to make
a reverse or S-like loop 9, back over the prongs
sweaters, shawls, and other articles of wool, with
in the opposite direction. 'They are all con
out the use of knitting needles. The device that
enables this to be done consists of a comb with
20 prongs projecting upwardly from a base frame
on which they are mounted. The stitch consists
of a double overlatch interlink, which will be
described more fully in a later portion of the
The construction of the comb is
25 improved by the use of grooves on the prongs to
catch the stationary loop of yarn and enable
those under to be lifted over same easily with
out entangling themselves in it.
The knitted
work is done in lines and lifted over in rows of
30 loops, avoiding the use of strings, and warps, as
required in looms and other knitting machines.
In this unique arrangement many advantageous
features arise which are not anticipated in the
conventional devices now known or used. In
other words, the yarns in this device follow par
allel lines.

This invention refers to the making of knitted
articles and clothing, and devices for enabling
In‘the construction of the embodiment indi
cated in the drawing I represents the base frame
of the comb and 2 the interlacing prongs mount
ed on same. These prongs are preferably tapered
as indicated from the base 3 to the top portion
55 4 and those near the middle may be slightly
nected at it together and make up another
row of loops across the comb. At the end of this
row, the yarn 29 is brought around the ?rst prong 20
and proceeds in another S-like looping 36 across
the comb. When the three rows of loops cross
the comb, the knitting isready for the overlatch
intertwine which is done as follows:
The top row of loopings 3t are not taken off 25
the prongs, but brought up to the line of grooves
5 where they are held stationary in same. This
is the ?rst step in the making ‘of the stitch work.
The second step is made by bringing up the two
lower rows of loops 6 and 5, together, with a 30
needle ‘I, and looping same over the ?rst upper
row 36 and continuing the carrying of them (6
and 9) over the top of the prong to the rear v
of the comb, where the knitted cloth is developed.v I
The stitches are then completed and form a 35
knitted cloth strip Hi from end to end along the
row of prongs as indicated at 8 in the drawing.
The process of loopingthe yarn is then con
tinued, making the ?rst row move to the bottom
portion of the prongs. Other rows are built up 40
or looped above as in the instance described,
until a su?icient number of rows are made. The‘
lower rows are then overlatched over the ?rst
row as before. The double overlatch refers to
the use of two rows pulled over the top row, as 45 ‘
described. When three rows are pulled over the
top row instead of two, the stitch is called a
triple overlatch, and so on. The purpose of the
increased number of rows is to increase the thick
ness of the weave. The use of this type of stitch 50
eliminates the use of conventional knitting, to
support same, and yet form an e?icient knitting
with the yarn construction supporting and tying
itself in every direction. It affords many advan
tages to the cloth knitted in this manner, par- 55

While but one general form of the invention is
indicated in the drawing, it is not desired to
limit this application for patent to this particu
lar method or construction, except as limited by
the prior art, as it is appreciated that other forms
20 might be made, using the same principles and
coming within the scope of the appended claim.
Having thus described the inventiomwhat is

the prongs, and the said groove being of semi
circular cross-section and adapted to receive and
hold the top row loopings and permit two lower
loop rows on the frame and prongs to be looped
over the top row loopings in an unobstructive
manner exteriorly to the comb to form an over
latch interlink ?at fabric on the comb, substan
tially as described.
