Bruce Huffa - Encino CA,
Assignee:
NIKE, Inc. - Beaverton OR
International Classification:
D04B 15/48
US Classification:
66127
Abstract:
A knitted component may incorporate an inlaid strand. A combination feeder may be utilized to inlay the strand within the knitted component. As an example, the combination feeder may include a feeder arm that reciprocates between a retracted position and an extended position. In manufacturing the knitted component, the feeder inlays the strand when the feeder arm is in the extended position, and the strand is absent from the knitted component when the feeder arm is in the retracted position.
