Never sewn with knits?  Find them a little scary and daunting?  In this class you’ll learn all the basics of sewing with knit fabrics as you make yourself an awesome, swishy circular cardigan out of knit fabric using the Scroop Patterns Mahina Cardigan.

 

Working with the pattern, you’ll learn how to:

  • sew knit fabrics so they move with you
  • set a knit sleeve in the round,
  • stabilise and sew darts in knit
  • bind/finish knit edges, choosing from three different binding techniques.

 

The cardigan pattern comes in from Circle Sizes, from a Small Circle bolero-look cardigan, to the full, swishing Large Circle cardigan.

This class is suitable for most sewing levels, from anyone with basic sewing experience (you must be comfortable using a sewing machine and able to cut and sew precisely and handle fabrics), to more advanced sewers who haven’t worked with knit fabrics.  One of the two binding finishes is significantly harder, and may not be suitable for all students.

Level:  Advanced Beginner.  Students should be completely comfortable threading a sewing machine and making simple items (bags, cushion covers, pyjamas, etc.).  This class is a good follow-up class to Absolute Beginners Sewing.

Materials: Students must supply their own fabric: a materials list will be provided on registration.

Cost: $120 (includes a printed out hard-copy of the pattern for use in-class, and a PDF version for home use)..

Teacher:  This class is taught by our awesome sewing expert Joanna Morris.

To register for the class (or to inquire about any class), please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.
