Types of Fabrics
Types of Fabrics:
Stockinette Stitch Fabric To make stockinette stitch fabric you knit one row, purl the next row. Continue in this format. Stockinette fabric looks like a whole bunch of V’s and the fabric tends to roll
Garter Stitch fabric looks like ruffles. It lays flat and does not roll.
Knit and Purl stitches used in a uniformed pattern. Example: knit 1 purl 1 for an entire row/round for many rows/rounds.
Seed Stitch AKA Moss Stitch
1) Knit one, Purl one for row/round
2) Purl one, Knit one on next row/round. Continue with 1 and 2 as pattern says.
