In this study, the effect of bursting strength of knitted fabrics in relation to ultraviolet protection was studied. Different knitting structures were investigated, which included single jerseys such as plain, pineapple, lacoste and other combinations of different knitting stitches of knit, tuck and miss as well as double-jersey fabrics of half Milano, full Milano, half cardigan, full cardigan, 1 × 1 rib and interlock. Experimental results show that when comparing different structures, the change in bursting strength with ultraviolet protection factor was found to be significant.
