You asked: How do you cut patterns on knit fabric?

Can I use a knit fabric for a woven pattern?

If this is your first time working with knit fabric or your first time using knit as an alternative to woven, it may be helpful to stick with a knit that doesn’t stretch from one room to the next. Just remember the more stretch you have in the knit, the end result will be more drape and loose looking.

Does knit fabric curl to the right?
