Knitwit Quilted Double Knit Sage Green is a lovely new quilted winter knit which is suitable for jackets or cardigans.
It is low stretch, by which we mean less than 25%. If your pattern is sized for a medium stretch (25-35%) fabric, you can still use it, but you may need to cut out a size bigger.
Knitwit Quilted Double Knit Sage Green is four way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in 2 directions: from selvedge to selvedge and also lengthways.
If your pattern is sized for a two way stretch fabric, you can still use it.
Sewing with Knit Fabrics
For knit fabrics, we use and recommend Gutermann Sew-All Thread, a top quality 100% polyester thread available in a huge range of colours to match your fabric.
You will need stretch needles for sewing knit fabrics. Use Schmetz Stretch needles – 75/11 on fine knit fabrics, and 90/14 on other knit fabrics.
Start each new project with a fresh needle, especially if the fabric contains cotton or wool. Blunt needles can leave holes on the stitching line.
Vliesofix Bondaweb Tape is a must if you want to get more professional looking hems and neck edges.
