Sew a cozy warm sweater instead of knitting one! Beautiful classic cable knit in a rich black wool blend. Fine quality designer deadstock from an Italian mill is a chunky heavy weight with alternating small and large cables, a soft hand and structured drape. Make a sweater, cardigan, vest, cozy coat or bind the edges for a throw.

SEWING TIPS
  • test, test, test first
  • use a walking foot
  • or, sew seams stitching over a strip of TOTALLY STABLE to prevent stretching
  • cut with a larger (3/4") seam allowance
  • sew primary seam with a longer length and narrow zig-zag stitch
  • experiment with serging: width and length, even feed
  • stabilize the shoulder seams with a strip of fusible tricot
  • steam lightly with little pressure on the seams - a clapper can be very helpful.
Lightly steam before sewing - as if blocking a hand knit sweater so the fabric is on grain and even. Hand wash and air dry.
