An improved MWK structure with a double loop pillar stitch is presented in this work. Its structural features, knitting process, and mechanical properties are analyzed and compared with a common tricot MWK structure. The results show that the improved MWK structure with the double loop pillar stitch has better mechanical properties than the common MWK structure with the tricot stitch.
