The Crafting Fashion blog is full of tips and techniques for cutting and sewing sweater knits, written especially for the home sewist. Garment industry methods are translated for the home sewing environment. Though these fabrics are sometimes unstable and unwieldy, I think that sweater knits are beautiful, versatile, and the most wonderful fabrics with their amazing properties of stretch and texture. With just a little effort and practice, anyone can create a gorgeous sweater, even if they can't knit or crochet.
