Sewing with Knits Project

Age 9-21

Project Information Page

The P.I.P. will tell you everything you need to know about this project: and how to successfully complete the 4-H year.

In this project, members will create a one or two piece track or gym suit (pants or shorts). The key to sewing with knits is to understand that the fabric is not woven, but rather knitted with a series of small loops that has stretch and requires patterns suitable for stretchy fabric. Members are strongly encouraged to have at least one year of sewing experience before exploring this project.
