Sewing w/ Knits

Getting Down to Business

There are a few things to consider before/while you're sewing with knits:

  • Test your stitches - Do a few tests stitches with a scrap of your fabric. Knits are prone to puckering, so play with your stitch selection/tension until your stitches are lying flat and looking neat
  • Don't pull -   If your fabric isn't feeding through your machine properly, check your tension. If you pull your fabric through you will stretch the fabric and it will create a wavy, bulgy seam.
