Have you ever needed to match your ribbed knit to your fabric but couldn’t find anything remotely similar?
Have you ever tried to dye your ribbed knit to match your fabric but realized it’s 70% polyester and it’s a pain in the ass?
Did you ever want to cosplay Final Fantasy and were reduced to tears because you couldn’t find chunky ribbed knit?
Don’t worry, you can fake your own.
All you need is a twin needle and two spools of thread, and you can sew your knit fabric to imitate ribbed knit.
When you sew with a twin needle it’ll make a sort of ‘pintuck’, raising the fabric. Leave a small gap between the two rows and it’ll create a pattern. This will work better with lighter knits, the one in the pictures is pretty heavy.
Once again, I set the instructions as captions on the photos.
I wish I knew about this! I’ve wanted a blue ribbed knit for Calem’s jacket collar.
