Procedure for Measuring Cross Stretch

Top: Place the sock top on the cross stretch arms centering the fabric across the arm fingers (figure 14). Hold the remaining fabric so it does not produce any drag on the measured fabric (figure 15). Depress the pedal until the machine travel stops and record the reading from the display (figure 16,17)

Leg: Place the sock on the cross stretch arms going through the top until the middle of the leg is across the arm fingers (figure 14). Hold the remaining fabric so it does not produce any drag on the measured fabric (figure 18). Depress the pedal until the machine travel stops and record the reading from the display (figure 19,17).

Foot: For a finished sock, cut the toe out of the sock (figure 20). Place the sock on the cross stretch arms going through the toe until the middle of the foot is across the arm fingers (figure 21). Hold the remaining fabric so it does not produce any drag on the measured fabric. Depress the pedal until the machine travel stops and record the reading from the display (figure 22,17).
