    I love this technique. I tried it on a T-shirt and it works well. The tighter the curve, the more steaming it needed to shape the piece.

    This is Awesome. I love wearing knits. I’ve inherited a serger and that makes part of the seems easy. Now I have a finishing technique!

      this is EXACTLY what i was looking for. i had no idea how to make the edges of a lavender wool knit piece look finished and there is no chance i would find matching bias stripping. can’t wait to practice this…

    Spontique, you can have no idea how much I love you for this tutorial. I want to sew some knits without buying a serger (I don’t want to make THAT many knits) and you just showed me how to get an even better, more elegant finish than I would get with a serger anyway! I particularly note the extra tip about not moving your pressing till it’s cool. I would never have thought of that. Thanks!

    Thankyou so much for the instructions. I’ve been putting off doing stretch knits because they always look really homemade but with these instructions I’ll have another go.
