plain mesh


Explanation:
MAGLIA RASATA : maglia in trama con maglie disposte su un solo piano, leggera e di media estensibilità

I know that Paola is right that maglia rasata is stocking stitch on knitting patterns.

This appears to be an industrial context and I found "plain mesh" in the San Giacomo catalogue - they make socks and sock-knitting machines.
Don't know how reliable their translation is.

stocking stitch, stockinette stitch, plain stitch


Explanation:
Following Angela's suggestion, I went and doublechecked the sources. I found (http://www.britannica.com/bcom/eb/article/idxref/0/0,5716,26... this enlightening article in the Britannica.
I termini tecnici per maglia rasata sembrano essere stocking stitch, stockinette stitch, plain stitch (che pero' non e' necessariamente maglia rasata).
Grazie Angela, e' utile sollecitarsi a vicenda.
