How is tricot knitting done?

According to wikipedia: "
"Tricot is a special case of warp knitting, in which the yarn zigzags vertically, following a single column ("wale") of knitting, rather than a single row ("course"), as is customary. Tricot and its relatives are very resistant to runs, and are commonly used in lingerie."
Tricot knitting is usually done with machines, and is used for track clothing, and bike shorts. This form of knitting is found in vintage knitting patterns, but is not much in favor for hand knitting.
