Select the correct Yarn count for Lycra 2x2 Rib fabric:

In my post I will introduce you with some equations, with which we can select the actual yarn count for knit the fabric. These are vary for fabric types.

Lycra 2x2 Rib 

Say, the require GSM is 220

Yarn count  = (-0.108) X (GSM) + 56.62

                   = (-0.108) X (220) + 56.62

                   = -23.76 + 56.62

                   = 32.86

So, to knit 220 gsm Lycra 2x2 Rib fabric we need yarn count 32.86/s

Thanks & best regards
