Title: Warp knitted fabric, method of manufacturing the same, and knit structure of warp knitted fabric

Abstract: A warp knitted fabric having the isotropy of strength. The warp knitted fabric is provided with a fabric weave and insertion yarn groups (14, 16). The insertion yarn group (14) comprises four yarns (Y4a-Y4d) of the same type. The insertion yarn group (16) comprises four yarns (Y5a-Y5d) of the same type. The yarns (Y4a-Y4d, Y5a-Y5d) are inserted into a warp-knitted fabric weave in the warp direction while being arranged parallel to each other at an interval of one wale in the weft direction. Each of the yarns (Y4a-Y4d, Y5a-Y5d) comprises a portion (14a) extending as a whole in the direction crossing the warp direction, a portion (14b) extending as a whole in the direction crossing the warp direction, and a portion (14c) extending as a whole in the direction extending along the warp direction and connecting the portions (14a, 14b) to each other. One of the yarns (Y4a-Y4d) is overlapped with a corresponding one of the yarns (Y5a-Y5d) when viewed from the thickness direction.
