Abstract: In this paper, the effect of different structures of knit fabric on ultraviolet (UV) protection was studied. Different knit structures were investigated, which included single knits such as plain, pineapple, lacoste and other combinations of different knitting stitches of knit, tuck and miss as well as double-knit structure of half milano, full milano, half cardigan, full cardigan, 1 × 1 rib and interlock. The results showed that double-knit fabrics provide better UV protection than single-knit fabrics.
