Knit fabrics have never been more fashionable, but the prospect of creating them can be daunting even to those experienced with the needle. Because of the "stretch factor, " knits can be tricky to sew without specific information about what techniques work for which fabrics. Sewing with Knits gives that information and more in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step format.

Author Connie Long shows both novice and pro how to create an array of garments, from slinky knit evening dresses to spandex-fitted athletic wear. In straightforward style, she demonstrates how to work with both classic styles and fabrics, and the many newer knits, including the matte rayon jersey so popular with high fashion designers. Included is information on how to adapt a pattern meant for woven fabrics, how to copy a favorite T-shirt, and how to sew with the intimidating sweaterknit. Expert advice on choosing the best patterns and using just the right techniques rounds out this practical guide.
