Tutorial Tuesday:: Working with Sweater Knits by Burda Style


As we are adding so many amazing Hacci Sweater knits to the store this week I wanted to share a really good tutorial by MegH posted at Burda Style that really emphasizes how easy it is to sew with these lovely fabrics.  The tutorial Sewing Technique: Working with Sweater Knits recommends some Burda patterns specifically, but really you could use any of your favorite tops or dress patterns.  With the right kind of sweater knit you will have your newest favorite cozy fall and winter items sewn up in no time for all season long wear!


I love how this tutorial shows you all the different stitches you can use to finish a sweater fabric too!



Meg uses a lighter weight almost jersey style of Hacci sweater knit for this application, but there are lots of different weights and weaves just perfect for chunky sweaters, flowy cardigans, and cuddly scarves.  A few of my picks from the shop:


    

    


We hope you enjoy this informative tutorial on techniques of sewing with Hacci sweater knits!  Please send 1-2 images of any project you make with Girl Charlee Fabrics to gcblog@girlcharlee.com and you might see your creation featured in our next KnitPicks!

Happy sewing!
