مزدوجة الوجه او الحياكة


Explanation:
In this context, it refers to an item (e.g., stockings) rather than to the knitting method/procedure. Flat knit stockings are made by back and forth knitting producing two faces/sides: the right side (facing outward and visible to people), and the wrong side (facing inward and touching the skin). Each is usually knitted from different fabrics, usually the softer materials for the wrong side/face. Thus:

جوارب مزدوجة الوجه او الحياكة
