Pique

A knitted construction that contains both knitted and tucked stitches. A simple pique would alternate knitted and tucked stitches in odd feeds on a knitting machine with all knitted stitches on even feeds. This fabric is often referred to as single pique or single cross-tuck. Other common single knit piques are double cross-tuck and six-feed piques.
