JERSEY KNIT: When working with jersey knit, you must make special accommodations. Use a ballpoint needle, which is specifically designed for stretch fabrics, usually size 11/75. Sharp needles, like a universal needle, can rip holes into your jersey knit; a ballpoint will avoid that problem because the tip of the needle is rounded. Polyester is the best choice of thread for knit fabrics, which is very important to remember, as it stretches as your fabric stretches. If you use cotton thread it's much more likely to break because it won’t give with the fabric. An example of this stitching can be seen on the Pete T-shirt. The example shows Coats & Clark Dual Duty XP® 100% polyester thread on a jersey knit.
