What is "Knitted" - Definition & Explanation

Formed by interlacing yarn or thread in a series of connected loops with needles.
Made by intertwining threads in a series of connected loops rather than by weaving; "knitted garments"; "a hand-knitted sweater"
Knitting is a craft by which thread or yarn may be turned into cloth. Similar to crochet, knitting consists of loops called stitches pulled through each other. Knitting differs from crochet in that multiple stitches are "active", or in use, at the same time.
