An exclusive, more expensive method of circular knitting in which the complete garment (sweater, hosiery) is machine-knit at once, instead of sewing several pieces together, so it fits the shape of the body. Fully fashioned knitting machines use a punch card or computer to “instruct” the needles to add or drop stitches, creating two-dimensional shapes that ultimately define the finished garment’s structure.
