No clue as to why I bought a yard or so of this… but I like the dreamy quality, and textures that show up in this material. Perfect for a scarf.
Square up the raw edges the best you can. Sometimes this type of fabric will slip a bit. I cut it four inches wide.
I sewed this knit fabric using a zig zag stitch, set it for a longer length at 3.0, and let the right side swing of the needle fall off the edge of the fabric, so it created a more stable hem; almost a ‘rolled edge’ type. (And a Bernina ‘sews on air’ beautifully!) A ball point needle is the best way to sew knits effectively and securely. I used Bottom Line 60 weight 100% polyester for my bobbin thread, and the same on the top. Use a finer needle, like a 70/10. I did loosen my top tension just bit, too, for that fine thread.
I love scarves!
SWEET! I love white on white and pretty pretty pretty : )
