Definition of Knit (noun)

Here at KPOTD, I am searching many sources for knitting related topics. As I've been dealing with knitting used differently in scientific journals, it occurred to me that I should look at the official definition of knit.

Now the word knit as a noun doesn't have any surprising definitions (1: Knit Stitch, 2: Knit Fabric) although I found it interesting that the word itself was reused in the definition! The interesting thing from this dictionary page was the "First Known Use" of the word Knit... in 1596. I wonder where this came from!

As always, if you can aid me in my research, please use the KPOTD submission form.
