How to Sew a Sweater
Hand-knit sweaters are wonderful, but if you aren’t a knitter or you’re strapped for time, you can still create gorgeous sweaters by using your sewing skills on purchased knit fabric. Sweater knits are available in a variety of weights, textures, and fibers that translate beautifully into fashionable garments. You can find versions with dimensional stitches, jacquard designs, cables, textured tweed effects, and lacy openwork stitches — each one beautiful and begging to become the sweater of your dreams. Connie Long shows you how to work with sweater-knit yardage for custom cardigans, pullovers, and more.
