  Knitting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Knitting became a household occupation with the growing popularity of knitted stockings and by the end of the 1600s, one to two million pairs of stockings were exported from Britain to other parts of Europe.
The topology of a knit fabric is relatively complex.
The canonical default texture for a knit garment is that generated by the flat stockinette stitch—as seen, though very small, in machine-made stockings and t-shirts—which is worked in the round as nothing but knit stitches, and worked flat as alternating rows of knit and purl.

 machine knitting - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about machine knitting
Machine knitting is used for a high proportion of fabrics, especially for clothing such as sportswear, T-shirts, underwear, jumpers, and sweatshirts.
The main drawback to this type of knitting is that a break in the thread on any of the loops means there is nothing to hold in place the loop below, and so this also comes undone, forming a ‘run’ or ‘ladder’ in the fabric.
Until the 1800s, knitting machines created only flat pieces of fabric, but the development of circular knitting machines meant that stockings and socks no longer had to be sewn together.

This approach leads knitters into inferring that if a knitter chooses to knit such and such a pattern, or with such and such a yarn, that they think the knitter is making a dreadful mistake and since the knitter is not making something they would make, that the knitter is a being of lesser worth.
