Working with knits - Tory! :D

Postby Soupdragon » Thu May 31, 2012 2:16 pm

OK, Tory, after I spoke to you I went off and did a little digging and now I know how to tell the difference between jersey and interlock. :yahoo: (I am so easily pleased. :hohoho: ) The lovley Bonnie at Fishsticks has it all covered - have a look at her awesome blog:

Knit Knowledge Intro

Interlock, knits and jerseys

Ribbed knits, ribbing and pile knits

Appliqué and hemming knits (There's also an older post on hemming knits here.)

Knits Q&A

I also found this: http://www.t-shirtforums.com/find-whole ... 29831.html and this: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/40 ... ock-jersey

Happy reading! :)

Thanks for that! I think I have the interlock then so. I can try a baby romper! @soupdragon I couldn't find the free pattern you mentioned? Knits are scary!

I actually much prefer working with knits than wovens as I find they are much mroe forgiving. If you are getting towards the end of a seam and you realise that the ends dont line up anymore, well thats not a prob, just stretch it a little and they will :wink:
