After finding a fun knit fabric at an outdoor fabric market, I chose to tackle Burda Pullover pattern #128 from 2012. I had the opportunity to try the new thread for knit fabric called Eloflex from Coats & Clark. And I used a double wide bias binding for the neckline.
Some notes: The sizing was a little off (bigger than expected) so don’t be afraid to size down. I have a short torso, so I made an adjustment to the length as well, which worked out well.
If you are giving the Eloflex a try, use a shorter stitch for best results. I used a 3 at first, then a 2 with much better results. Also don’t use the Eloflex thread to combine knit with non-knit, like on the binding. Use regular all purpose or cotton thread for that or the seam will gather and pucker.
