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

Garter Stitch fabric looks like ruffles. It lays flat and does not roll.
