Now- a- days denim is the term which conquers the world with spectacular fashion appeal. Denim is that fabric which goes through all forms, looks and washes to match with the ever-changing fashion trends of people. Conventional denim is a durable and heavy twill-weave fabric made from cotton;it is woven from coarse indigo dyed or sulphur dyed warp and grey un-dyed weft yarn. In the competition with smooth and extensible knitted fabric, denim has made a suitable place in fashion market earlier. Since denim takes up a large share of the market in the present world, and as knitted fabric has various structures which allows it to fit body shapes and be comfortable, a new way of combining the two methods of fabric construction to create a "Denim effect using knit structures" can be found. Research has been carried out using single jersey circular knitting machine to create denim effect with knit and tuck loop separately.
