(Cl. 2-90) rì‘his invention relates to an improvement in knitted sweaters and relates to sweaters of the points of the shoulders, to form the body portion of the sweater to which the sleeves are secured pullover type and of the coat type. on lines F, F, and to which the collar is secured Sweaters of the type to which this invention on the line H. relates more particularly comprise a body por Thus, the seams E, E extend from the neck 5 tion, the front and back members of which are knit integrally except along lines extending from opening or the line of juncture of the collar to the points of the shoulders or the lines of junc the base of the neck to the points of the shoul ture of the sleeves with the body. ders and along which the front and back mem 10 bers are secured by seams. The seams E, E are formed by bringing the edges of the members A and B together and se- l0 l Such sweaters are provided with a collar, usu ally formed by a double ply of material knitted curing them together by the stitching i spaced with a tighter stitch, or with a liner count yarn from their edges and which also acts to secure the resilient member G along one of its edges to than is the body portion. 15 Heretofore such sweaters have been found to the members A, B. 'I‘he vfree edge of the-member readily lose shape due to the eiîect of strain on G is generally in line with the free edges of the 15 members A, B. the shoulder seams, such, for example, as irn 'I’he stitching z', which serves to secure the posed when the wearer swings the body and arms, members A and B and the resilient member, as in playing golf. Loss of shape under such con 20 ditions may be minimized by the provision of var which may be an elastic band, together, is looped ious seam structures and of reinforced seams. around the free edges of the members A, B` and 20 G, as shown _in Figures 2 and 3. However, such have heretofore been disadvan When the several members have been secured tageous in that where they are sufñciently resist together, the members A and B are separated, as ant to strain to minimize deformation of the gar 25 ment, they reduce the flexibility of the garment on shown in Figure 3, and the seam completed by lines of stitching y', y’ in the members A and B, 25 the lines of strain, with restriction upon the free dom of movement of the wearer, and negatively respectively, on opposite sides of the seam and which act to secure threads lc thrown across the effect the initial ñt. Now in accordance with this invention a sweater free edges of the members and looped into the 30 is provided in which the shoulder seams are con structed and reinforced in a manner such as to provide for the utmost flexibility and for the ab sorption of strain tending to deform the gar ment and, at the same time, to insure initial fit 35 and retention of shape to a maximum degree. Having now indicated in a general way the nature and purpose of this invention, I will pro ceed to a detailed description thereof with ref erence to the accompanying drawing in which a 40 preferred embodiment has been illustrated and in which: Figure 1 is a front view of the upper portion of a sweater of the pullover type embodying this invention. 45 Figures 2 and 3 are sectional views showing a shoulder seam in accordance with this invention in course of construction. Figure 4 is a sectional view of the finished seam. Figure 5 is a plan View of the finished seam. In the several iigures A is the front member, B the back member, C_the collar and D, D the sleeves of a knitted sweater of the pullover type. 'I'he front and back members are secured together by the seams E, E, which include a resilient mem ber G, and extend from the neck or collar to the stitching, as shown in Figures 4 and 5. The seam as described is of great durability and resistance 30 to strain and, at the same time, since, as will be noted, the elastic member G is secured along one of its edges only, it acts to prevent distortion of the shoulders without reducing the resiliency of the knitted fabric of which the garment is made. 35 What I claim and desire to protect by Letters Patent is: 1. A sweater comprising front and back mem bers forming a body and a neck and arm open ings in the body, the front and back members 40 being secured together by seams extending from the neck opening to the arm openings, said seams comprising respectively a line of stitching secur ing the free edge portions of the front and back members together in superimposed relation along 45 a line spaced from the edges of said members, a resilient member extending the length of said seam and secured by said line of stitching adja cent one of its edges to one of said members said stitching extending over the free edges of said 50 members and of said resilient member, lines of stitching in said front and back members, respec tively, and extending the length of said seam in substantial parallelism with said first mentioned line of stitching and a thread extending back and 55 2 2,135,727 forth over the free edges of said members and looped into said last mentioned lines of stitching. 2. The method of producing a seam for secur ing sections of fabric together which comprises superimposing the edge portions of two sections of fabric, laying a resilient strip over the edge portion of one of the sections of fabric with one of its edges in substantial alignment with the free edges of the superimposed edge portions of the sections of fabric, stitching the superimposed edge portions of the sections of fabric _and the resilient strip together on a line spaced from the free edges of the superimposed edge portions with an over stitoh extending over the free edges of the super imposed edge portions and the edge of the re silient strip aligned therewith, extending the sec tions of fabric in opposite directions, stitching the sections of fabric respectively on lines sub stantially parallel with the first mentioned stitch ing and looping a thread extending back and forth over the free edges of said superimposed edge portions into saidiines of stitching in the 10 sections of fabric respectively.
