RE: [F-Costume] Difference between knit and woven fabric
- Knitted fabric is formed by looping one "string" over and over and over.
Woven fabric is several "strings" that are crossed over and through each
Does that make sense?
>>How can one tell the difference between fabric that was knitted andwoven? I guess woven looks more square-like:

To use the same source:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knit#Properties_of_knitted_fabrics . It's
loops instead of straight across. Knit fabrics stretch because of the
looping in the fabrics while a standard woven cloth as built-in stability.
