From Middle French tricoter, from Old French tricoter (to beat with sticks) (compare Old French tricot (stick, cudgel)), derivative of trique (stick, game played with sticks), from earlier estrique (stick used to knock down grain), from *estrikier, *estriquer (to strike), from Frankish *strīkan (to move or pass one thing over another, strike), from Proto-Germanic *strīkaną (to stroke, touch), from Proto-Indo-European *streyg- (to strike), equivalent to trique +‎ -oter. Cognate with Old High German strīhhan (to smooth, stroke, spread, rub, strike), Old English strīcan (to stroke, pass lightly over the surface, smooth, rub, wipe, strike, go, move, run).
