Tips fo Knit Fabric

  • Find the straight of grain by holding up the fabric of knitting fabric manufacturer with the selvages of the fabric aligned. Shift the selvages to the left and right until the fabric hangs straight and doesn’t have any drag lines.

    Use a rotary cutter for better accuracy.

    Use a stitch with stretch (more on that down below)

    Use a walking foot or, if you don’t have one stitch with tissue paper under your fabric to help it feed through the machine.

    Use a ballpoint or jersey needle. This will prevent holes from being made in the fabric during stitching. Bonus tip! Test your stitches and needle on a scrap of fabric.

    Jump in and practice. Every machine and fabric will behave a little differently so it’s important to practice and figure out which techniques work best for your machine.
