Make Knit Garments with Style

Dec 14, 2012
Article Image
From super-chunky sweater knits to whisper-thin tissue knits, to cobweb-style open knits-and textured, printed, dyed, and double-faced fabrics in between-knit textiles are more interesting than ever.There are many ways to approach designing with knits. You can use the unique properties of the fabric to transform the look of a trusted basic pattern. Or, you can play around with combining fabrics to see what kind of garment they want to become. Whether you begin with the pattern or the fabric, you’re sure to arrive at something modern, original, and completely you. Author Katherine Tilton shows you how to create fabulous garments in this article from Threads issue #156.
