Knit fabrics are usually measured in kilogram whereas it is related to GSM as well. Knit fashion is now popular in the world market. Knit merchandising is not so easy thing whatever consumption is one of the key factor for knit merchandising. T-shirts, pull over, polo-shirt (long sleeve or short sleeve) are treated as knit top garments as well as trouser and pant are treated as knit bottom garments.


Consumption formula for any TOP knit Garments


 

(Measurement in CM)

(B.L + S.L. + Allowance) X 1/2 Chest X 2 X GSM X 12 ÷ (10000 X 1000) kg/dz   

Here, 
B.L - Body Length
S.L - Sleeve Length
Allowance - Allowance would have considered for both B.L and S.L
GSM - Gram Per Square Meter
10000 means cm is converted into meter
1000  means gram is converted into kg

(Measurement in INCH)

(B.L + S.L. + Allowance) X 1/2 Chest X 2 X GSM X 12 ÷ (1550X 1000) kg/dz   

Here

S.L - Sleeve Length
Allowance - Allowance would have considered for both B.L and S.L
1550 means inch is converted into meter (1 inch = 39.37" where inch square will be 39.37"X39.37")
1000  means gram is converted into kg


Consumption Formula for any Bottom Knit Garments



(Measurement in CM)

(Inseam + B.R + W.B + Allowances) X (1/2 Thai Circular + Allowances) X 4 X GSM X 12 ÷ (10000X 1000) kg/dz

Here, 
B.R - Back Rise
