Knitwit Ponti di Roma 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 Ponti di Roma is a 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 Ponti.
