How do you cut knit fabric?
I like to cut with shears with the pattern still pinned to the fabric. If you like, you can use a rotary cutter, which is lovely for knits, but make sure to use a cutting mat underneath. Also, keep your little fingers away from the blade, they’re very sharp.
Does knit fabric curl to the right?
Generally, though, because of the different stitches on the front and the back, the raw end of a jersey fabric will curl towards the right side of the material.
What tension should I use for stretchy fabric?
Tension: For loftier knits or stable knits, like ponte or scuba knit fabrics, try a lower tension around 2 or 3. Around 4 is usually good for heavyweight knits. The 4-5 Tension range generally yields the best results with light to medium weight knits.
