Knits can be tricky, especially stretchy knits.

My tips:
- If you use a serger, set your differential high to avoid stretching out the fabric.
- If you sew on just a sewing machine, a walking foot really helps.

Try sewing with your knits again! Start with your least favorite knits to practice on until you feel confident.
