A fabric that has cords or ribs formed by the weave running in the filling direction. Contains both knitted and tucked stitches.

A simple piqué 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 piqué or single cross-tuck. Other common single-knit piqués are double cross-tuck and six-feed piqués.
