Drop needle

I was reading a clothing ad and I saw this word. It said new drop-needle sweater or something like that. I think it has to do with the shape of the seam or the colors of the sweater but I am not sure.

    It has to do with the pattern in the fabric, I believe, formed by dropping out certain needles as it is woven. It makes subtle stripes, usually. (That's my best guess, anyway, from my experience. I'm no clothes horse.)
