  1. I am dying to make the leap to sewing with knits!

  2. I LOVE KNITS!! I am very new to sewing and you know what? I have totally taken on knits and enjoy them. Yes, I still have quite a learning curve, but if you sew slow…and pay attention, it is so great. I do have a serger and that has changed my view on knits!! I plan to work on a few things and start posting to my neglected blog. Hopefully I’ll get a little shout out here!

    I wanted to thank you so much for this series! I have read and reread each post. I just got a shipment of various knit fabrics today and I am prewashing (twice!) right now. All of the posts are so informative and have given me the confidence to jump right in. Thanks again. I know my kids are going to love their comfy new clothes!

  4. You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be really one thing which I think I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m taking a look ahead on your subsequent put up, I will try to get the grasp of it!

    Any suggestion about ironing knits? How hot the iron? Shall I cover the fabric?

    Hi Rae! Thanks so much for this series. I rarely comment on things on-line, but I had to with this. It was so enlightening to see that there really is no one “right” way to do things, that everyone does something different. Thanks a lot for the idea and for collecting the info and introducing me to some awesome blogs!

    My biggest fear of knits is adding ribbing to necklines. It keeps me from even trying. I guess I don’t understand how to make it myself and have no idea if it is something I could purchase. Have you addressed ribbing or trim in detail, and I have just missed it?

      Hi Amber,

      I haven’t address adding necklines on the blog (yet), but the flashback tee pattern has some tips on adding neckbands. I’m also working on some tutorials for finishing necklines, so that may help.
