The back of the garment is flat-knitted, except for its crocheted upper and lower edges. You state that the stitch counts of the fabrics of the garment measure less than nine stitches per two centimeters.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6110.20.2025, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pulloversand similar articles, knitted or crocheted, of cotton, other, other, sweaters, girls’. The duty rate will be 17.3 per cent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 345. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

In addition, the designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at the time of shipment.
