Title: Method for the manufacture of designed knitwear on circular stocking knitting and knitting machines

Abstract: A method for the manufacture of designed knitwear on circular stocking knitting and knitting machines is provided using one or more feed stations, starting from a first base yarn (13) and from a second base yarn (14) for the manufacture of a basic knit fabric and from at least one dyed yarn (15) to create a design in the basic knit fabric. Some needles (11) are selected to pick up and knit the dyed yarn (15) and the first base yarn (13) without picking up the second base yarn, while the remaining needles pick up and knit the second and first base yarns (13, 14), excluding the dyed yarn.
