Surface affects everything around us and everything that we see, touch and use has a surface. This interaction cycle is very important in production design. Developments in science, design and new technology have an enormous effect on this interaction period. Surface Design is a combination of coloring, patterning, and structuring of materials. These kinds of design applications appear in different fields. Especially in Textiles, Surface Design can be considered one of the most powerful applications because they have versatile combination of properties, structures, raw materials, and production techniques. There are three different techniques of creating a surface in Textiles: Knitting, Weaving and Non-woven techniques. Each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages. In this study, it is aimed at combining two of these techniques (knitting and weaving) to suspend the disadvantages and create an optimal surface highlighting the advantages. Three different fabric samples having different surface densities were produced. First by weaving technique, fabric samples were woven in a special plate within three different yarn densities. Then by knitting technique, fabric samples were knitted by using the same weft yarn without interruption. Woven and knitted fabric surfaces were assembled within non-seam process. A whole seamless textile surface was created by combining with weaving and knitting. These textile surfaces were analyzed via Image Analysis.
