In this work, a geometrical model for 1 X 1 purl fabric is created by using Kurbak's (1998) model of plain knitted fabric. Drawings of the structure were created by using the graphics program 3DS-MAX. The loop shape obtained was a similar shape to what has been obtained experimentally in real fabrics.
